Don't Forget

Donate to GRAFT's memory drive

In The Crossing Cormac McCarthy wrote, "life is a memory, and then it is nothing." The book explores many of the things that we think of as making us human. Among them, of course, memory. It is powerful to suggest that experience is fleeting and the bulk of who we are is composed of our memories.

Yet, there is a margin of error. Our experiences are subjective, and so are our memories. The good people at GRAFT are collecting those "[memories] on the edge of disappearance, one[s] that feel incomplete, ... that you cannot verify" for an art project.

Early memories, things that may be real or may have happened in a dream ... I have a whole compendium of these and to know if they are true or not would change the fabric of who I am.
