"Collecting Items, Assembling Memory"

Section MS1, Kamil Dalkir

Keywords: archival practice, documentation, memory

Memory can be actualised through items, that is to say, “memory can “travel” thanks to various kinds of media, e.g. monuments.”1 The items brought back from a trip or journey can bring me back to that place - whenever I see these items, I will be immersed in the scene and recall unique personal memories. This project photographs a collection of various items brought back from my travels to assemble my experiences and memories.
