    Read Here Now

    Read Here Now
    Do you have a memory of reading a book, a story that you always associate with where you were, and what you were doing while reading it? While making my window installation Between Here & Now, I was thinking about this idea of experiencing both my physical location and the world in my mind at the same time.
    contribute a memory about reading
    Print out and write down a memory you have of reading a book that always reminds you of where you were when you were reading it.
    You can also color in the blank book to evoke the story or the place you remember. Please take a photo of each and email it to mary@mvmarsh.com. I will be sharing the stories on my instagram and compiling them into an artist's book.
