MEMORY draws the audience into an appreciation of the contrasts of geological time and a human life span; of neurological processes and geological processes; and unexpected similarities between micro and macro perspectives.
Subterranean panoramas of caves are juxtaposed with extraordinary aerial views of Somerset and time-lapse confocal imagery inside a fly.
These enigmatic images are given further authority by voice-overs that tell of pilots caught between life and death, traversing the air above the earth, some able to reflect back on their hard-won experiences, some forever silenced.
MEMORY features compelling stories told by former RAF pilot Dave Linney and wartime historian Robbert Turner.
Timelapse confocal microscopy imagery provided William Constance & Darren Williams, Centre for Developmental Neurobiology, King's College London.
Music and sound design by award winning composer, Dominik Scherrer.
