Quote of the day:
‘…places are made after their stories, and … place names are condensed stories figuratively embodying an encounter in time and space.’ Paul Carter (2009) ‘Dark Writings’, University of Hawai’i Press, p. 143.
Activities:
Thinking about geography, journey and passage in relation to memory. How am I tracking my own passage in this place, right here, right now, and in what ways does it intersect with my ancestor’s passage(s)?
Taking photographs of photographs: trying to select which photographs from the photo diary I’ll set up and re-create, and considering if that’s even possible.
Listening to yesterday’s recordings in the dam at Lake Guy, in which I read sections of the photo diary encased in the beautifully reverberating concrete spaces.
