Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's disease which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of dementia cases. This book attempts to aid in the understanding of the subtle nuances of dementia through a compilation of essays and visual narratives. It ventures to emphasize memory loss as a nonlinear process brought about by aging. This publicaton and installation acknowledges the incurable disease and represents the condition as a complex assortment of experiences that deserves to be addressed.

 

A photo essay and personal statement are included to commemorate my grandmother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 7 years ago.

"Being and time determine each other reciprocally, but in such a manner that neither can the former — Being — be addressed as something temporal nor can the latter — time — be addressed as a being."

—Martin Heidegger
