Tropism by Nhu Xuan Hua


Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled “Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory.” The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.
