The Analog Memory Desk by Kirsten Camara
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
This Memory Desk is a tool to record all the small items you write down, but intend to forget tomorrow. This desk had been created from the obsession of Camara for remembering the past. There are a hundreds of little things that we don't try to remember every year or even every week. Does the sum of all these tiny parts produce a new narrative on our lives?
1,100 yards of paper will record the lists, the phones numbers you called once, the pixel size of that box on that website, the street name of that business, and the long division you try to remember or any other note that you didn't have a paper around to write on and instead wrote it on the desk. The Analog Memory Desk is simply made out of hard maple, butcher paper and a glass panel; the paper rolls from the two ends of the desk on the top surface of the desk, making it easy to have a clean and fresh start for taking notes.
