Tattoos and Other Markings explores the experience of memory, weaving together concepts of the old and the new, past and present; traditional and processed sounds from Armenia and Egypt, spoken text, and machine sounds. The piece explores the incompleteness of memory and the places in-between where things are less remembered and memory is more obscured.
