This piece demonstrates the breakdown that happens in dementia: the physiological aspect of the erosion of neural connections along with the loss of identity, which go hand in hand with loss of memory and shared experiences within a family unit. There is a strong narrative aspect to the work showing clarity and new bright colour/channels at the start of a life, gradually building more complexity through maturing years, ending with only the traces of memory and connectivity as life becomes less.
