What role does memory play in art?

  • Using memory in art , creates impossibilities
  • fabricates the truth, allows you to play around with your imaginations and memories
  • memories and imaginations run high when travelling in a car. I’ve always told myself to never fall asleep in the car, anything outside of the window can inspire you.
  • Salvador Dali /



“The neocortex and thalamus are responsible for controlling the brain’s imagination, along with many of the brain’s other functions such as consciousness and abstract thought.[15]Since imagination involves many different brain functions, such as emotions, memory, thoughts, etc., portions of the brain where multiple functions occur—such as the thalamus and neocortex—are the main regions where imaginative processing has been documented.[16] The understanding of how memory and imagination are linked in the brain, paves the way to better understand one’s ability to link significant past experiences with their imagination.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagination#Memory
