Abstract way of looking at Memory topic

Here are some of the starting images that I produced using different stamps that I had made. They relate to the way in which memory is made, using the physical process of stamping out each shape to get a slightly different outcome each time, like someone's memory. Although we may experience the same event, our memories will never be exactly the same of it.

The first image was an initial experiment, using the same shape repeated; the idea that the memory cells are all the same but what's inside them are not.

The second image related to the idea of neuronal networks that make up different memories. They group themselves together depending on what they are about which makes it easier to retrieve the information at a later date.

The third image touches upon the influence of our senses building up our memories. What we see, smell, touch, hear and taste are the way that we take in information that is changed into a useable form in the brain to be stored as memories, where relevant. Not all information is taken in, just those that seem more important to us.
