About the Show "The idea of preserving memory is significant to the way we remember people, place and things. We often rely on our mind to recall memories as we age. This show explores memory building through cognitive psychology, the process in which studies the way of people think, perceive, remember and learn. I have been collecting and documenting blind contour drawings of people in my life. I have been observing the physical appearance of four important people in my life through repetitive and organizational procedures. Although the results may appear different, the building of memories through the blind contour drawing process will force the mind to remember. The blind contour drawings are the end results of my meetings with these people. Thus, the drawings are evidence of my practice and my commitment to this regular routine." - Tharmila Rajasingam
