Reddishblue Memories, by Iván Argote, uses the artist's affective memories as part of an ongoing project of research and speculation based on a rumor associated with the history of George Eastman’s Kodak company, and its switch from Kodachrome to Ektachrome. This was allegedly done for ideological reasons : in the late 1960’s they realized that Kodachrome pictures turned reddish with time, and in the context of Cold War decided that the United States’ archives could not end up with the enemy’s color, and so developed the Ektachrome process, in which pictures eventually turn blue.
