Flashcards for Forgetting


Flashcards for Forgetting is a text-based collage that compiles found text from literature, social media and personal dialogues to form a meditation on the phenomenon of not being able to let go of painful or unhealthy love relationships. The excerpts appear stripped from their contexts, narrators and authors, and in randomized sequences that are unique to each publication, allowing the reader/viewer to create their own narrative, meanings and/or interpretations from the intermingling of such universal expressions of emotion and attachment. Taking the form of flashcards aimed to help the reader remember how to forget the object of their attachment, the publication ultimately seeks the poetry and cross-cultural impact of Amir Levine’s ideas of anxious attachment.

Product Description


Directions for Use: Read these flashcards in a linear fashion while drinking a glass of wine in bed alone or pull cards out at random and shout the words aloud in public in your most empowered voice or repeat each card one at a time over and over again until it no longer sets your insides alight with fear/anxiety/grief or lay out ten cards like a Celtic Cross tarot spread in attempt to experience a false sense of control over your future.
