• An empty room is a place full of possibilities – Synopsis

    With this series about the loss of memory, Paulo Simão builds a fake memorabilia that invites us to look to the past to see the future... or not. Playing a game of hide and seek, suggests us a place to look at in two diferent times, which for some reason was world-wide news. This project questions how memory is being replaced by digital technology and how, the end of the fisical archive, affect us in the way we produce images and keep memories. In this post-truth time of accumulation and exhaustion of images, we find ourselves before the paradigm of the loss of memory and the unpredictable consequences of that on the course of history. 8 from 45 archive sheets Size of the archive sheets: 29,7 x 42 cm Size of the postcards: 15 x 10 cm
