The Notebooks series is inspired by notes taken during witness testimony in order to ensure the accuracy and precision of the oral translation. The quick, palimpsestic mark-making implies the ephemerality of memory.  It evokes the parallel process between the witness recalling memories and the interpreter who disposes of memories as soon as they are formed, creating space for the next words to be interpreted.
