The concept of Memento is created by the understanding of time and change being used as a linear form. It all began with Borges's thought that every human is filled with time. This is a great concept to tell with the usage of origami. Because in Early Japan the origami cranes were used as a tool for messaging. This usage is a very intimate concept. When a message is written inside an origami crane, it has life and time given by its author. Human's are also filled up with these kids of memento's. When these thoughts are lined in a linear form it kills the way that we remember. By this fact it is seen that time is a thing that we remember and collect. The items that I have created for my senior work are all about how we collect time. In my opinion this is done by using all of our senses. So it can be seen that when we think about time, we don't think about when it happened, we think about how it happened. This concept was afterwards visualized by a book, postcards, moving posters and many more stuff that were designed.v Read Less
