Residual Memory

The is a reflection on Family history. Things get passed on from generation to generation, new objects are added to the collection and some objects are separated fropm the collection... lost, stolen, distributed at a death or to a new baby...

All these things "meant something" to someone but the meaning to one person is lost to the next but a new meaning is added by that person.

The whole has a different meaning and value than each item and to one person the meaning and value is different....

Objects represent the original owner less than they represent the person who gave them to the present owner, and they represent the current owner differently than they do the giver.

Some of these objects are very old, some newer but they represent in whole and in part a life.... 50 plus years of personal history exist in this pile of objects but there is also 100 plus years of family history; the history of a number of families, as well; and well over 100 years of cultural history tied to the objects, too.

In a way, as well, these objects represent other objects lost, stolen, and passed along; as well as the collections of things they came from individually...
