Brad Rimmer // Forever & Ever
1981, in limbo between leaving the wheat belt or staying, hanging around and working on the wheat bins in the middle of somewhere.
The soundtrack, 'Scary Monsters', one of the few cassettes left in the car. Listening to 'Ashes to Ashes' reverberating over corrugated gravel roads ... 'Time and again I tell myself, I'll stay clean tonight. But the little green wheels are following me. Oh no, not again.'
I am interested in how our history, our experiences and our emotions shape us, how we arrive at a time in our lives when we can find a comfortable balance between looking back and looking ahead. How our sensory archive collects sounds, music, smells, colours, shapes and the tiniest details to trigger memories almost cinematically.
