Unmentionables engages participants to think about the memories we keep versus the memories we want to forget. For this project, old letters and photos were collected by people that didn't talk to each other anymore. Each of the objects were transformed with embroidery to seal the past and create a new memory.
Through this process participants explore the tradition of collection in relationship to memory. Participants would discuss how long they had kept their objects and why they thought they needed them. They also shared how hard or easy it was to donate them to the project.
Through participatory installations, visitors were welcomed to contribute their own story and objects.
