Memory of Long Ago

2018

Breast milk, semen and snow were perhaps our first encounters with white. What if snow had fallen orange? How would our early perceptions of life, creation and reverence of nature affect our current notions of virginity, race, purity, beauty?

Memory of Long Ago has been made using highly beaten abaca fibers that were letterpress printed using Joanna types. Papers were waxed and bound to resemble an ice core. Layers of frozen water, or firn, hold our planet’s memories from long ago.
