I’m using two partially overlapping methods to generate memories from my <life:
- letting them come spontaneously (involuntary memories)
- making efforts to provoke them (voluntary memories)
Involuntary (spontaneous) memories
(laying or sitting down in a tranquil room, trying to foucs on the past, and letting the memories flow in free associations.
using the archival material (documents and photos) to provoke specific memories.
