My work focusses on the fascinating ways in which people construct the narrative of their life through memory, bias, and idealistic perspectives. I’m interested in how our lives and relationships to others are bound by fiction.
“We live” writes Pursewarden somewhere, “lives based upon selected fictions. Our view of reality is conditioned by our position in space and time – not by our personalities as we like to think. Thus every interpretation of reality is based upon a unique position. Two paces east or west and the whole picture is changed.”
