Sue Doggett

I work primarily in book form and for a number of years have been looking at the relationship between the book and memory. This has taken the form of works that consider the subjectivity of personal memory and how we use and consider books in our lives. I am also interested in the way that sound and image affects our remembrance of things and often work with found music scores, memory objects and ephemera which can add resonance and layers of meaning to new work.
