Mark Mcleod will be holding a ZOOM lwecture on April 1st, 2021 at 7:00 PM.

"My primary focus for the past 10 years has been the ever-changing and erroneous nature of memory. Memory is a fallible, persistently shifting, exploitable thing. My interest in memory stems from our inability to store and retrieve some long- and short-term events. I remember few events from my childhood and very little from my recent past. This deficiency has forced me to rely on secondary storage and retrieval methods. Video has become a backup for incomplete memories, and photography has become my proof of moments. My life has been subsequently organized into little blue digital folders by year, month, and event. This shortcoming makes me question my limited recollection of the past and what I have come to understand as reality" — Mark Mcleod
