This event invites participants to come and share objects, (fragments, knick-knacks, bits and bobs, letters, photographs, etc) and experience collectively the processes of remembering via the kinds of speculative reconstruction that Zain employs in her artwork. Participants will share their objects and their associated memories and meanings in small groups, responding to various prompts posed by Zain to guide the conversation. At the end, groups will share what was discussed and Zain will share how for example one of the audience images come to life (or gain second life) virtually.
