Dissolve is a collection of fragmented memories from inside the mind of our fictional character, Olivia.
It is about memory loss and the struggle to find coherence. Olivia's memories are constructed live with the use of sound effects and props, and framed with real-time projected footage. We invite our audience to watch her world being constructed and deconstructed around her.
In our day-to-day lives, we repeatedly capture moments on film, to share and look back on as proof of who we are, who we were. Like a broken tape head, Olivia sees, but she does not record. If you could hold on to only one memory for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
