ESSENTIAL MEMORIES * 1

series of visual objects >>> vienna, austria >>> 2021

some experiences one lived through are particularly important >>> they constitute one’s personality and follow them the entire life >>> first sex, death of a close person, the moment of release from an abusive relationship, or other intimate and personally significant events might serve as examples >>> the recollections of such life-changing occurrences one might call ‘essential memories’

the essential memories are an important and in some sense uncontrollable part of us; even though they stay forever, they do alter with time, sometimes being blurred or suppressed, sometimes being decorated by the imagination with surprisingly new details >>> they develop when we develop; they gain a new significance when our values change; they become older when we become older
