Memory Book, 2011
This unique book is an expression of time and memory recorded in rippling pages where the outer page represents the present moment and each page within is a memory or event designed to be seen through the present, similar to how we perceive our own memories through the context of our present condition. As each page moves closer to the center, symbolically further back in time, the abstract imagery become more vague and faint representing the deterioration of memories according to the Decay theory proposed by Edward Thorndike.
