The Recall of a Memory (2011) is part three of a series of five artist books exploring and experimenting with the idea of Memory.
In this book I attempted to illustrate the process of what a brain/mind/imagination might do when searching, plotting, and recalling a memory.
I used collections of dryer lint from the last 6 months in plastic bags for the pages. Each bundle or page has a collective and extracted memory of my time interacting with the environment and the people that make it up. On each page I have provided specific views or windows into the collections that stimulate a recall more than others. As the collections move within the bags so to is the recall affected.
