:: FUCKDIMANCHES ::

What is permanent? So many people come in and out of our lives; we share moments, create memories, and form relationships. The difficulty is trying to make these ephemeral parts of life last. We often document to give memories more permanence. To further these efforts, my friends and I began inking our skin to memorialize the temporary moments of our youth, our friendships, and our environment.

For this project, I have assembled four years of collected photos and footage from numerous friends at multiple events in cities around the world. Though these recordings weren’t initially intended to be archived, fuckdimanches creates another experience to relive these moments one more time together, for another 24 hours. In the future, what will serve as more permanent reminders of past memories and connections?
