The thing is a salvaged symbol…

17 October 2010

“The thing is a salvaged symbol,” I said. “If I see one in a charity shop or house clearance I have to take it with me, I can’t bear to see them left behind… the memories, the places, the moments, broken from their past. I have no intention to relocate it myself, just keep it from getting lost or destroyed. I now pass the responsibility on to the curator, for him to make good on other people’s memories.”
