Artist Janet Biggs talks about her exhibition Echo of the Unknown, a video and audio installation that explores how memories make up our identities. Biggs draws on her own family members’ struggles with Alzheimer’s Disease, as well as research conducted with neurologists and geologists, to create immersive juxtapositions of imagery that recall flickering synapses and metaphorical journeys into the depths of memory. The exhibition was created in conjunction with the Blaffer Art Museum and more than a dozen University of Houston research colleges and institutions.

Echo of the Unknown will be on view through March 21 at Blaffer Art Museum.
