Memory echoes the experience of a lifetime. If that memory is tainted a haunted aspect erupts in place of peace. The notion of what is lost, what has happened and what could have been collides with new memory.
With no memory markers in family and no link to past comfort; traces of pain are deposited within the individual, the family and within the home; infecting the community.
Dysphoria: Loss was my conceptual response to research about Australia's children who were placed in homes and at risk of institutional and government abuse. Theses number in the 1000's and came from British colonies and Australia's white children in need. They are now known as Care Leavers.
