"Then I came to understand that the forgotten moments are the price of continued participation in life, a force indifferent to time."
– Sarah Manguso, Ongoingness: The end of a diary.
Time is a constant in a direction forward, a movement that affects us both on an individual and a collective level. What we remember are fragments of previous events, or what we are reminded of. Thanks to a collection of impressions we can arouse intuitive impressions what was then. We have succeeded in preserving certain of these impressions outside our biological bodies, gathered together in the form of photographs, texts or objects; the remains of a specific moment in the past.
We have an opportunity to orient ourselves through layers of history that narrate the story of my time, your time and our time together. Where we were, what we wore, what we saw or what we felt at that particular moment. Signs of the times can tell us about our own time and can describe visions for the future, though without any precise answers. It is up to us to remind ourselves of what was yesterday in order to develop tomorrow.
With this as inspiration create a collection that is not defined by or defines a specific body, gender or context.
