from fragment/object to memory/archive

«Something I read from film-maker Wim Wenders reminded me (…) ‘That which is fragmentary dips its roots in memory deeper than that which is whole. Things fragmentary have got a rugged surface for our memory to hold on to, [whereas] memory just slips on smooth surfaces (…) the importance of deeply observing objects while they are at rest (…) footprints and the trail of toes, the stead fastness of a human atmosphere flooded with things, from the inner and outter sphere.»
