In this ongoing project, I am attempting to record all of the factual knowledge that resides in my own memory. I record the information directly from memory without the aid of any reference materials. The information is then classified and recorded into the corresponding category book(s).
In this series, I start by writing a description of what happens in the movie from memory, including as much detail as I can remember (plot, costume, setting, characters etc). Then, the surface of a found theatrical poster is scratched away, leaving only the areas where the text of the description remaining.
Each piece in this series begins with a celebrity commonly associated as being part of a famous family. From the starting point, I draw a family tree of that person, including both real and fictional familial relationships. This genogram is drawn completely from my memory and ends when I can think of no more relationships.
This series is based on my facebook friends. I am in the process of creating a drawing of each of my over 600 friends on facebook. Each drawing is based on their profile pictures, and consists soley of text. The text is all the information that I know about that person.
In this series, I start by writing a description of what happens in the movie from memory, including as much detail as I can remember (plot, costume, setting, characters etc). Then the text is laid over the movie’s theatrical poster, so that the poster is only seen through the text of the description.
This series was created from prompts from Jake Parker's 2017 Inktober Instagram challenge. But instead of ink drawings, I decided to make relief prints. I took the prompt and fed it into the search bar of my music library, making a woodcut each day based on the results of the query (either artist or song title). Terms that yielded no results are represented by an inkjet print.
In this series of videos, I have recorded myself performing every line that I know from memory for a particular movie. Each line is performed based on my recollection of how the line exists in the movie, including the dialogue, pacing, etc. The resulting audio is then superimposed over the original video from the movie.

Caroline Burghardt + Amanda Tiller present a mash-up collage musical sing-a-long movie, the narrative of which is drawn from six classic Disney romances. The original songs have been replaced with iconic 80s(ish) ballads. This video performance is an examination of the structures and paradigms that shaped our childhood ideals of love.
