Our instinct for preservation makes us resist oblivion. We hoard, archive and document in order to resist the natural course of memory. We don’t want to forget or be forgotten, so we strive to be significant enough so that our legacy will be preserved for posterity and become part of a sublime narrative. We embalm ourselves in this way and as if that wasn’t enough, we do the same to others. We are lured by the remains of the past because in them we see ourselves, so we collect and archive the dead in order to dissect them, until we discover how they may or may not fit into our own story.
