Publisher’s Description: Working Memory photobook, 35 x 23.5 cm, handmade special bound cover, includes four custom laser-cut folders with hand-tipped ink jet prints on the front, 56 pages of color photographs divided into four sections, plus a 35mm slide duplicate encased in a translucent, sealed envelope with text hand-typed onto the envelope, edition size 25 Working Memory is a portrait of Shirley Jorjorian, an artist and friend who was living with Dementia when we met. The project combines photographs with scans of papers and other items found in her apartment as well as reproduced pages from a standard test given to assess the various stages of Dementia. The project examines identity’s relationship to memory and the absurdity of attempting photographic preservation of reality. It is presented as an archive in book form, referencing Shirley’s own archive of hug lists she made after being diagnosed with Dementia.
