Double A Project - Memory Bank

Memory Bank

Memory Bank, 2018
Participatory interactive installation with foldout cards
Commissioned by the Asian Arts Initiative

In Memory Bank, the artists engage with the idea of a collective memory of the Asian Arts Initiative. Through their research with the archives of the organization, they have pulled elements from past activities as memory prompts and have created a foldout card in which they ask the community to fill out and offer their memories.
