In its silhouettes, shadow, depth of field and chromatic stylisation, Memory Room 451 is the most extreme example of the neo-Expressionist aesthetic the Collective pursued throughout the 1990s. Originally entitled Hair, Memory Room 451 is a bitter fable of a world in which dreams become the media platform of the future century and time travel is shiftwork in the graveyards of tomorrow.
