  • Memory Base

We all collected stones when visiting places as children and as adults some of us still do. They act as tactile repositories of our memories whilst simultaneously representing the DNA and history of the world around us, older than human existence they immutably connect us to place and time. In the 21st century we manage memory as packets of information in data bases and digital files, with unique identifiers for managing recall, much in the same way as museums might label an object in its store, and arguably not dissimilar to the retrieval pathways we create ourselves for remembering.
