Beyond Temporality: Collecting Memories as a Form of Conservation


February 2016


This project serves as an act of memory making by looking beyond the temporality of built space. An ode to the sensations instilled within us associated with architecture by way of collective memory. Through traces of the past, a string of associations are engaged within the spectator relating to the historical and cultural context of the building’s original function. Conservation of these heritage sites can be understood as a way to honor the past, present and future of the site and its symbolic significance. With the passage of time, how has the physical deterioration of the place deteriorated or shifted the meaning and remembrance of the place?
