Processes of memory,
the actions of remembering, forgetting and misremembering
memorabilia keeping family narratives alive
autoethnographic beginnings of the tools
speculative, fantastical realisations of the relationship between the thing and memory
a particular function relating to a memory process.
The intra-action between the maker and the thing
the imprint of myself on the thing,
the traces of being,
signposts of the self
ontological understanding of how memory is experienced through the thing
stitch, direct casting in bronze
reinforces the understanding of how a thing intra-acts with other things
the role of memory in these transactions.
