Bleached out: photography and the aesthetics of loss, forgetting and erasure

  • Peter Bennett

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This thesis examines the aesthetic representation of memory and forgetting through the use of photographic and other visual metaphors. By exploring the aesthetic characteristics of such representation, it develops a critically informed practice and reflects upon the processes of loss, forgetting and erasure, in relation to the hastening structures of temporality that have accompanied the rise of modernity.
