Slough

Scraps of paper, notes, lists, tickets, tags, and receipts have a tactile nostalgic quality though they are useless.   Patches were created by layering these mementos with nylon to make a covering for the entire body.  Red thread was used to stitch the patches together as if sewing surgical sutures.  The suffocating process ended when the patchwork skin was cut away with a blade.  The sentimental scrap generated by daily rituals became sloughed skin.
