Kate Farrall creates bioluminescent photographs that investigate memories, mistakes, inheritance and the decline of analog photography. As she hacks into the personal narratives of strangers, she re-casts their memories to consider their how their existence still has an impact even though they are long gone. She sees a correlation between photography’s evolution with that of memory and genetics. By cultivating a bioluminescent fungus called Fox Fire, she harnesses its communicative properties as a metaphor for the ever-changing state in which we hold memories, and the way genes mutate and photographs decay.
