Memory Trace is a new solo performance work exploring various aspects of memory through voice and electronics, interactive multi-channel video, sampled text fragments, and gestural movement. Composed and performed by Pamela Z, this work will be presented in an intimate three-night run at Royce Gallery.

"I can still remember the time in the early nineteen nineties when I first purchased memory. I delighted in the fact that I could hold it in my hand: a thin, green wafer etched with a lattice of metal lines.  And I quickly noticed parallels between the computer's memory and my own. Prone to anthropomorphism, I continue to compare and often confuse the two. I am interested in exploring how humans and computers store memory.  How do they "misplace" information and how do they lose it entirely? How can we differentiate between dreams, "real" and "manufactured" memories? How do certain sounds and aromas trigger very old memories?"

Memory Trace explores these questions through a series of dreamlike sonic and visual episodes of remembering and forgetting.
