ST. JOHNS BRIDGEI remember listening to Daughter the entire drive there, the way the air felt slick and charged, how we let everything go when we reached the midpoint and craned our heads over the railing to get lost in the swells. I remember how it felt to show it to you for the first time. I remember feeling like August would last forever.



WE REMEMBER, PDX, a collaborative project that explores place and memory, is put together by a good friend. Recently I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how memories can be relative to other people, in context to our personal relationships with them, and how memory can be transmited. I’m also really interested in the rention of memory in physical space, how our brains process this, et cetera. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of this project and the idea of tagging emotional responses to things (visuals, maps), and I’m also just pretty much a big fan of Jose’s brain and what he’s been putting together. A lot of his work has inspired sparks of thought in my process over the last handful of months, and I’m grateful to have him in my arsenal of creative peers. 

If you live in the Portland area, think about submitting something to the blog! Even if you don’t, it is worth taking a look.

CALLING. ALL. PORTLANDERS.

We Remember, Portland is a project that explores place and memory. The concept is simple!

  1. Take a picture of a place in Portland that holds an important/special/cherished memory for you. (If you already have a picture, use it!)
  2. Submit your picture, the cross street or address of the place, AND your memory. You choose how detailed you want to get. You may submit anonymously!

Go to WEREMEMBERPDX.COM and submit your memories! Go go go go go!

Homeless shelter is transformed into 5-star restaurant, hot food and warm hearts all around.  See the full video here. 

I watched the video and I thought it was great. Because it’s not just like, nice food or whatever, it’s being treated like a guest. The people who staged this also made a 5k donation as well as handing out fancy gift bags that had basic self-care items/toiletries which are in really high demand because people will donate food but never think about hairbrushes, soap, toothpaste, et cet.

Not only that but i really appreciate the sentiment here that’s so against that whole poverty policing, “poor people don’t deserve anything nice ever” bullshit that’s getting louder in our society.
