Sandra Elkind

Visual Artist & Memory Collector

Memory Collecting Commissions

The memory collection process is equal parts investigation and evocation. For the patron who commissions a collection, it can be a perceptive and immersive experience. Working through a series of intricate steps with Sandra, the patron will re/create a part of the past.

The process begins with the patron taking part in a pre interview activity that will prepare them to rouse a memory for Sandra to collect. Once ready, Sandra conducts a series of interviews with the patron guiding them in a verbal reconstruction of the memory that they want to manifest.

After the interviews are finished Sandra takes all the collected information to her studio to complete the final phases of the process creating documents of the undocumented.
