Memory. It’s the story we tell of our lives. It’s the story of how we each became who we are. We pass our memories down to our children and it shapes who they are and who they become. It is our history. We can’t get through the day without it, it strings one event to another yet we are completely unaware of it.
It makes its way into our dreams and our imaginations and helps us hope and plan for our future. We don’t realize that everything we do depends on it until we lose it, or something goes wrong and we become trapped inside of it. It is always there, the backdrop supporting everything we do.
As powerful and as constant as it is, memory can change. It is dynamic, an act of creation. And when we change our memories, we change who we are.
Feel Memory is about the power of memory and the suffering that can happen when memory goes awry. Through the lens of storytelling, art and science we show how the sharing of stories and the newest developments in the science of memory can shine a light in the dark corners of our minds.
