On Taxidermy and Other Objects of Longing;
"Sadness is most actually linked with the real physical loss of a person, place, or thing which has passed from view. With this loss comes remembrance, and with remembrance, a longing for the departed and, in its absence, a sentimental yearning for a token, an object, something which can be felt and touched: a material souvenir of what no longer is but which lingers everlasting in memory ... Objects of remembrance are private things filled with a personal and, at times, incommunicable significance."

We're bad at remembering things. Our minds are troublingly liable to lose important information, of both factual and a sensory kind. An obvious response to the consequences of forgetting is making art."
