History is more than what you read in a textbook. Long after the people who experienced an event are gone, our surroundings are scarred by monuments, gravestones and historic markers that point to something that once happened here. But what is absent from these physical spaces is also important to understanding the values of a community. Local historians and reenactors, community leaders and family stories fill in the missing pieces of how we as a society remember the past. Through video, audio, photography and filmmaking, my work showcases community commemoration and documents the events that make up the patchwork of our collective memory. What we chose to remember, why and how we go about sharing those memories is important to how people shape the present and future.
