Fascinated by the Memory Palace, a mnemonic device, which works with an architectural space in ones mind, I created my own, placing specific objects in it in order to remember them.
This book presents three different memory palaces designed as walks: the streets of Montevideo, Uruguay, my home & studio in Brooklyn, and the galleries of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Present, past and imagined spaces here all converge in the stab binding of layered translucency, along with a pamphlet with throw-out pages.
The copies each have an embedded cassette tape, with music connected to eight unique memories.
