    Remembering Marnie

    Remembering Marnie

    At 90 years old, some of my grandmother Marnie Sproule’s memories were starting to fade. I recorded conversations with her to preserve some of her stories before it was too late. Throughout the process, I realised that memories are precarious, and can’t be trusted. Science fiction approaches to memory can offer explanations; of how the Mandela effect and time travel create glitches in our perceptions of reality. But then, how do we hold onto precious memories, before they’re gone? Even though they’re gone? Why are they gone? Are they gone? Are… they… gone, gone, gone?
