Every place has a unique story that shapes the people who lived their, we remember our parents warning us not to forget where we came from as they know having a busy life in a rapidly changing world can alter our beliefs in profound ways. High real estate prices create rapid transformations in our communities as older homes are demolished for townhouses and condos and family businesses are pushed out for chain stores. This is not simply nostalgia for the past but a desperate struggle to connect to personal roots in the community when they are rapidly disappearing. What happens when you return and that place does not exist anymore and more importantly what happens when no one is left to tell that unique story. The struggles and histories and defining moments that embed meaning into the place will disappear under the name of "progress" unless we fight to preserve that past which has such intrinsic value , do our children and grandchildren and generations that follow us have a right to that rich experience.
The Living Memory Project helps us rediscover the places and people that have shaped our lived environments.
How the Process Works
Step one - I will record personal testimonies of events and histories important to the client.
Step Two - We then edit the audio perhaps mixing in sound effects . Once edited we store the files on our secure servers and create unique scannable QR codes for each file. (These codes can be scanned by a free app on any cell phone)
Step Three - Once all recording are done we take the clients selected photo's and get them re-produced onto canvas each with a unique QR code embedded on the bottom left corner.
Step Four - Once you have a collection of artwork displaying the cultural heritage of the area you can put them on display in a gallery (city hall etc) attracting locals and tourist, it is a modern way to display heritage and very sexy for the younger generation.
Step Five - We also promote the project permanently on this website giving people the info they need to visit. We will promote using social media and our podcast Conscious Landscapes.
Each Living Memory Project piece will be printed onto a 20 by 24 inch canvas and include up to 30 min's of testimony. Each art piece is valued at $500 and a minimum project is 10 art pieces, any art pieces over 10 are discounted by 20% or $400 each. I will contact you after the initial purchase is made.
