This series explores the reconstructive nature of memory in eyewitness testimonies. Drawing on research from renown psychologists’ in the field of memory, these illustrations have been created based on 10 individuals’ varying perceptions of a single experience.
These recollections have been collected through an experiment, which aimed to record how individuals’ version of the truth differs based on their unique interpretations of a single piece of film footage. The results showed evidence of memory distortion based on their choice of language, past experiences and cultural relevance. The visual creations of these accounts can be seen in the framed images and are further contextualised in the publication, which presents the interview transcriptions and thematic analysis’.
