Paper Memory

When a piece of paper is folded, the memory of that fold remains. When a child is impacted by the interaction of another, that impact remains. Both the paper and the brain hold the creases and bends. Paper Memory is an exploration of the subconscious crease patterns of the mind, the impact from childhood narratives.
