Overview

An effort of memory comprises a series of still images taken from a short film of the same name which attempts, through the reconfiguration and synthesis of personal and historical imagery and narrative, to apprehend an idea of history, specifically Australian history, that starts from a presumption of subjectivity. If the historical narratives we are presented with are subjective and driven beyond the quest for truth, then the possibility is present for a multitude of histories, discarding presumption, embracing the individual take for what one hopes is an absence of agenda and sharing out the personal. An effort of memory discards conventionally temporal modes of history making in favour of new connections between events and outlooks, between quotidian observation and chronicled construct.
