“Flight of Memory” a project I created in collaboration with filmmaker Pedro J. Padilla, has been selected as a finalist in the Digital Graffiti Festival in Alys Beach, Florida. Exploring the way in which memory selectively simplifies and reduces the features of those places that are recalled, this piece conjures the image of a seascape from memory, bringing it to light through the flight of a flock of seagulls. As the birds approach the viewer, rather than obstructing the view of the sky and the sea, they illuminate and reveal it. A peaceful seascape emerges from the void with each beat of the seagulls’ wings, visible for only an instant. […]

I teach at the Cooper Union Saturday Program, which offers free art classes to New York City public high school students.” -Amelia Alas Please click on the image for […]
