The mechanism known as ‘memory’ is composed of an intricate web of little cogs and wheels, and sometimes appears to operate quite randomly. Something as banal as tying your shoelaces may suddenly trigger a brief flashback from your childhood or a recurrent recollection of a traumatic event. At other times, remembering is an active, deliberate process: thinking back nostalgically to a happier, more carefree time, for instance, or recalling someone who played an important part in your life. The memory’s filing cabinet is a large and hybrid structure, biased by emotional responses and seemingly lacking order. Minuscule details take on enormous significance, and conversely, major lines dissolve into an impenetrable grey mist of disjunctive events shorn of visual or other associations.
