    Jack and Natalie both habitually gather “something” in their daily lives. We collect “something” without knowing their purposes, yet feeling there would eventually be. The utility or futility of “something” cannot be clearly recognized right away. The aimless act of collecting might imply their potential strength we see in vague.

    The exhibition stems from the confusion towards the displacement of memories. We tend to capture variability and fragility of memories. New memories of the “past” are manifested with/without our knowing, the consistent rival between elapse and preserving.
