From an early age I have been interested in the preservation of my memories. From photos to small memorabilia, I kept everything. Eventually, after more than ten years, I had a box full of mementos of happy days, half of which no longer remember. The realisation that despite those pictures and memorabilia my memories are slowly fading, is what sparked my curiosity about how memory works in relation to our memories.
Through this artist’s book I hope that people will realize how vulnerable our memory is and that we sometimes take it for granted. Especially now since we live in a time where we have our mobile phone so close at hand and can therefore capture everything we experience. Do we experience the memories differently by photographing everything? And what if the photo fails or is lost? Will we lose the memory as well?
