In the midst of dealing with a break up, I began to think about what it meant to commoditize a memory, sell it, and profit from it. Is the memory gone once its sold? Am I profiting off of something that is completely intangible? What happens when the buyer projects their own emotions on to my experience?
In Memories of My Ex For Sale I bring forth conversations around the emotional challenges of dealing with a painful break up, and the intimate conversations that emerge when grieving is made public.
