Entry Title: "Snippets of Memory"
Name: Karie Edwards , United States
Category and Expertise: Collage, Non-Professional


Entry Description: Memories are cohesive mosaics of the mind, created by our unique ability to recall snippets of our lives. These snippets form mental images visible only to us; they are scattered moments and complex flashes of life’s experiences. They are images that gently float to the surface only to wane away, or hit you in the gut full force in great detail never fading far from our consciousness. These photomontages are assemblages of my memories; a recollection of moments deeply etched into my consciousness and unconsciousness that reveal a lifetime of happy and painful snippets for all to see.
