A Glimpse Into Memories
Each individual has a unique way of portraying and retrieving memories. As someone who is interested in memories, Joe Brainard's poem called I Remember stood out. I think that Brainard's choice of making a biogrpahy into a poem is very interesting. Brainard chooses to show his life's journey, recalling their past memories in the form of a poem, and always starting every sentence with “I remember”. In this piece, I try to replicate or mimic the sensation or feeling of someone retrieving their memories — of someone remembering their memories.
