Some Things We Choose to Remember, Some Things We Choose to Forget
By Brendan Jackson
Images and small fictions inspired by the collections at Snibston Discovery Museum, by Brendan Jackson.
Set in different periods and in the voice of different characters, these fictions reimagine lives and circumstances that surrounded these objects. We all collect things of importance to us, tokens or trophies, repositories of time and memory, but over decades and generations the original significance of these are forgotten. History is clouded, rewritten, rediscovered as new stories are unearthed.
We'll be releasing a story from Brendan's Publication each week on this website, the Leicestershire Museums Blog, Twitter and Snibston's Facebook page.
