Memory of Objects

I have been developing a found book series. This project uses discarded books, collected from the locality and incorporating the use of found/significant objects. Touching on the cherished object and how small items that are important are carried around, concealed and protected over time. Sometimes the items are minuscule, passed down in the pocket of a jacket or carried as a protector when travelling. The object carries a memory of place, time-something that is remembered. The found book format explores language, image and object as revealed by the participant, through discussion of the journey and the experience.
