We constantly make decisions that determine the direction of our lives. We retain the information and knowledge of these events and experiences, which we can then retrieve at a later date. I imagine life and memory as branching structures which extend infinitely forward into the future and backward to the beginning of our consciousness. While is it difficult to forecast what will happen in the future, the past is ours to mine. How we establish our personal historical narrative is explored in Path.
Like a human being, Path is constantly making decisions which yield information that is retained and retrieved. Unlike human beings, however, there is not a singular branching path which clearly traces the past. Instead, there are multiple memories presented onscreen which are continually being manipulated and recombined, creating an infinite number of possibilities for new memory growth.
Our immediate impulse is to establish or define the narrative linking these onscreen memories. The profusion of information quickly overwhelms our singular path model and we arrive at the essence of Path, floating in the memory space. We abandon the idea of complete narrative and feed on the new temporal poetry. As we interact with Path, we see ourselves vested into its memory and are confronted with another view of our reality.
