Studio 1 and 2: Bridge 1 and 2 Projects

Working alone and with someone come with advantages and disadvantages, both of which I experienced with Bridge Project 1 and 2 respectively. When alone during Bridge Project 1, I had my own memories, and own perspective and opinions of them that had remained standardly positive even after being resurfaced more vividly 18 years. I had to consult my own memories and thoughts during this project, such as how would I represent the memory, what details did objects of nostalgia have, et cetera that were exclusive inside my own life and experiences, which I could only rely upon myself to remember. In general, I had many freedoms on the first one, but no one to double check or correct me on any flaws.

With Bridge Project 2, the memories were shared between me and my partner, as we experienced it in the former present together. If I forgot something I could rely on Braden for clarification and missed details, instead of forgetting them and or fabricating fill-ins for them. It was like thinking as one, but more decisively and hesitantly, and being a target for correction or dispute. I thought of it as being like an angel and devil on a person’s shoulder, yet I could not determine which out of the two of us was the “evil” or “good”. Nonetheless, we kept a balance when doing the project, in terms of mutual criticism and sharing work. In terms of remembering, it was somewhat easier as the event was more recent than childhood memories.
