Continuing on this path of researching the alteration of the memory, personal memories seem so engrained our minds; they would never leave, yet they are so malleable and susceptible to alteration. With older software, jpeg compression often led to “generation loss.” The loss of quality between subsequent copies. Anything that reduces the quality of the representation when copying, and would cause further reduction in quality on making a copy of the copy. Taking a single image of my father, I rotated it and saved it, rotated and saved it until it was done 1000 times only to be left with a ghost of original, unable to ever get back the face that I would never see in reality again.
