Save Event: Joby Williamson: WHat Have You Forgotten

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Joby Williamson has been collecting discarded post-it notes on a daily basis for ten years. What began as a casual observation has evolved into a committed process of ‘i-spy'. Scribbles, jottings, shopping lists, aide-memoires, notes of endearment, phone numbers, announcements, ideas and doodles: these scraps of paper, seen en masse, form an anthology of personal and working lives, ranging from the prosaic to the profound. We present WHAT HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN? as an ongoing archaeological project. Like an insect collection they are suspended in time, as if Williamson has pressed the ‘pause' button to provoke awareness of these small, tossed-away pieces of paper.
