The video “A Walk Down Memory Lane” uses imagery from Google Street View to create a narrative about the individual experience of living in different cities. It combines images from neighborhoods in Cologne, Berlin, Tel-Aviv Jaffa, Bangalore, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon and Mexico-City in a collage. In addition to the video, the artist created a map in which the different areas of the cities she’s lived in are combined into one fictional and personal peninsula.
“What if we were able to take a walk through all the streets that we’ve lived in, connecting different countries, cities, neighborhoods and the corresponding periods of our lives with our steps, forming one single route? It would be a biographical landscape shaped by one’s own memory. A personal, psychogeographical map in which all the pathways and territories are accessible and linked to each other by the meanings we attribute to them.”
