Memory Project Preview

Rose Coleman2
Objects are often inculcated with memories and tradition. Family heirlooms, borrowed and never returned items, and gifted possessions are imbued with thoughts, smells, and spirits of people otherwise forgotten or not thought about. However, family heirlooms are disappearing, items have become disposable in effort to cut cost. The lifespan of our possessions usually does not exceed our own lifetime. So what is left? What do we pass down? Where do the memories we do have, go? How different are memories in the absence of physical agents to provoke them? Or what have become our heirlooms today? Are our heirlooms different? Do we consider a pen or nightgown an heirloom rather than a family chest?
