Meeting the ladies of the camp, what stroke Aya Abu Ghazaleh were their strong memories to the old villages and the existential longing to visit Palestine. But time and generations have distorted the images in their heads. “Our memories of our homeland of Palestine can be tricky and forged; what do we remember? Windows? Doors? Domes? What were their colours?” she says.

This memory belt shows the distorted images of the houses, and at the same time can literally hold them together. And with the little pocket inside the most precious thoughts can be carried closely.
