Coping With Forgetfulness
This organizer is a collection of reminders, schedules and daily notices to help with my forgetfulness, which often causes me to be all over the place. The concept is about re-interpreting the form of a notebook. Thus, instead of using regular paper for note taking, I collected photographs of my immediate surfaces; my skin, kitchen cabinets, table-tops, walls, clothes, making them into "surfaces" for records.
This is inspired by the film 'Momento' where the main character suffers from a condition that does not allow him to make new memories. To cope with that, he tattoos on himself. So instead of literally writing on myself or my immediate surroundings, I have collected them and put them in a form of a notebook. To prevent me from ever losing this book, it is coloured in striking pink and it can be carried like a bag or tied to other bigger items.
Hopefully this book will be returned to me if it ever gets lost.
