Paper Trails is an exhibition consisting of two animations, Inquisitive Vignettes and Traces. These animations, one of which is projected on and accompanied by a player piano, examine the creation and interpretation of our cultural and personal histories. We construct these narratives from a variety of records, whether they are memories or physical artifacts, and while technology enables the ephemeral to be made tangible, the following questions remain. How much has been lost, preserved, excised or manipulated to alter the narrative, and what traces have been left?
