18:53 23-01-2011 (II) is the second investigation into the once-lost photograph. This time, the photograph undergoes through a bath of diluted bleach. The moment loses details little by little, mimicking a memory’s oblivion. Yet, before it dissolves, the colour of burning red, transient orange, and fading yellow, emerges in the grainy black & white photograph. The present moment of recollecting a once vivid memory is filled with emotions, sentiments, blurs, alterations, and disappearance.
