The title refers to the memory process that allows individuals to retain impressions of sensory information after the original stimulus has ceased. The title is also a nod to the way the prints were made: the photographic paper was moved during exposure in the dark room, so instead of a photograph of one palm tree, the image becomes a multiple of that same image.
All prints in the edition are different and some have been touched with ink. This edition fits perfectly in Roels’ oeuvre: it touches on the nature of the analogue photographic process, playing with repetition and variation, while using his favorite imagery: palm trees.
