The Memory Reservoir




The Memory Reservoir is a human enterprise for uploading memories, for preserving and recycling them. This is a work embracing audience participation to personally move between different modes that allow for memories to re-emerge, be written down, or dictated, and thus to be experienced anew.

You are invited to join in a journey collecting, recalling and repackaging living and lost memories – a journey affording you several viewpoints, and introducing ceremonies and defining components.

The memories that arise in you can be put away, written down, kept to yourself and/or shared with us.

Sitting by the reservoir you can answer questions or remain silent, recall things with closed eyes or simply ponder them through line and color, order a memory sitting at a bar or listen to a long-forgotten song.
