“Darkness is the reset period of the light. Closing my eyes resets the image unfolding in front of it but does not reset the image in my memory. What will I perceive the next time when I open my eyes? My memory, a virgin image or a mix of? Routine circles of impressions (print in) and reprints give stability to my perception activities and prevent overflow. MEMORY RESET plays with the presence of stereotypes in every single step of our live.”
