Time Memory 1, 2012

Time is frozen in memory. Time is preserved in small pieces - photos, movies, letters, diaries.The fossil time is used as building blocks for our memories.We polish those blocks as if they were from granite and we cover the floor, walls and ceiling with them in our temple of our experience. But it is not granite. It has been scratched. It has graffiti. It is missing some pieces, so it was patched with some imagination and rationalization. Our magnificent temple of experience can crumble any time.
