Memories they come and go. There are memories that we cherish and some that we lose sight of. We long for that feeling, but bit by bit we soon forget. The unreliability of a memory, isn’t that enough? ‘Some Days’ explores a non-linear narrative about facing ourselves and our memories through the use various mixed media styles and techniques. Some days we long for broken fragments, as we fear that it no longer contains the connection that was once there. But in the end we realise that these fragments will always be a part of us and the feeling might not be the same but it still holds a special place within us.
