Rememory references my experience driving through the fertile crescent and passing many refugee camps. This ancient land is actively cradled by the Syrian border and utilized by potato farmers and sheep herders. Composed of reclaimed fabric layers, Rememory mimics the use of alternative (and necessary) materials to create shelter.
