PROMETHEUS -
The collective memory is a construct of what is remembered by monument. Without the acknowledged presence of something, reminiscent of the classical notions of ruins, we remain impartial to our own selective past. Ignoring the multitude of actual fragments dispersed upon the landscape, we experience both illusions and truths of our own past.

Prometheus is a project that places us within these preserved ruins that do not always appear within these historical traditions. Prometheus investigates this monumentality and its architectural foundations as the basis of our contemporary memory. How it is determined that a specific ruin remains upon the landscape? The traces of technology remain both as a construct of the landscape and as a construction upon the landscape. The images in this project frame us within something that would be passed by unnoticed without voice and without significance. The absence of a physical manifestation is in opposition to an inherent form within the landscape that equally implies a memory of something.
