Dealing with themes of memory and change, Thornton uses family photos, pop culture, world events, and outdated media to illustrate the modern relevance of these past objects and events. The use of erasure and fragmentation represent memory’s imperfections. Pixelation and computer manipulation represent the physical world merging with the digital, as the digital world is one of contemporary society’s recent cultural evolutions. The marker drawings represent the accumulation of things that were once valid but have lost their original importance. The drawings represent the paradox of what to do with things that were once meaningful yet no longer serve the same purpose. Check more on his website or Flickr.
