Time and Memory
"Clocks count the hours, but we experience time like it’s a texture, sometimes thick, other times thin, sometimes folded, other times smooth and synchronous." Vanessa Berry
Museums are not only repositories of significant collections, they also act as memory devices.
Time and Memory explores the many ways in which the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences collection reflects upon the concepts of time and memory and provides a lens through which we can see the world outside the immediate time frames of modern life.
Featuring recollections and observations from talented Australian writers Samuel Wagan Watson and Vanessa Berry, as well as contributions from MAAS authors, Time and Memory presents over 70 objects from the Museum’s collection of time-keeping, information storage and memorial objects.
