Digits 2010-2013

Charlie Hahn selected several historical images, replicated on top of news print papers, folded and hid the images in 100 different places. After re-collecting the images in a while, the artist straightened the folded images and printed numbers in relation to the hidden places using stencil technique. As soon as personal memories are identified and appears through the numeric system which is humanity’s universal language, it resolves to normal. The lined-up numbers transform into the memories. It becomes a mediator creating personal speculation for the viewer’s and agitating deep memories from the past.
