The sound memoriasmus of James Leyland Kirby.

Dreams of Ghosts

In memory everything seems to happen to music.

—Tennessee Williams

James Kirby’s “The Caretaker” is a long-running project inspired by the processes of the brain's function in recalling memories. Those who suffer from 'theoretically pure anterograde amnesia' will still be able to recall memories laid down before the onset of anterograde amnesia, but will exist in a transient world where anything beyond their immediate attention-span disappears permanently from their consciousness.
