Memory Palace


This book, “Memory Palace”, demonstrates my compulsion to remember and to be remembered by way of collecting. The pages are a storage place for a range tokens representing experiences that I have saved over the last twenty years. In this way it is a vessel, holding objects that I can retrieve at any time to awaken memories temporarily forgotten. Codified by color and arranged chronologically, each item signifies a particular time and place. This structure was chosen because of its resemblance to a series of rooms. A memory palace is a mnemonic device, which helps a person to catalog and retrieve information. The creation of “Memory Palace”, has allowed me to transform this mnemonic device into physical reality.
