Memory Diaspora


Plantae is the first series of Memory Diaspora. I collect individual memories of plants via audio fragments in which people describe how they remember a plant and other recollections about that plant. Natural and human-manipulated migration of plants and the possibility to join different plants together (grafting) inspired me to fantasise how memories of plants will grow and graft together in the world of memory.
