Medium Memory

A series of slides from travels in the U.S., Europe and Egypt between 1987-1990 have been scanned, printed and were exhibited as postcards. Exploring memory as a medium, visitors were invited to share words, poems, memories, and stories (factual or fictional) that might be inspired by the images.

Duplicate postcards were provided for this, and contributions were shared in future exhibitions and at http://hopefitzgerald2.tumblr.com/

“When pictures are taken, the intention is often to keepsake a memory — of a time, a place, or people we care about. They hold our stories in place, like Wendy Darling’s stitches reconnect Peter Pan’s shadow. Due to the passage of time, many of these images have lost their stories. Perhaps some stories that have lost images can be found here.”

Medium Memory invites visitors to contribute to the work through their own memories, or through stories, poems, fact or fiction.
