Summary

"Time and Memory explores the many ways in which the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences collection reflects upon the concept of time — as a scientific quality to be measured, and as perceived and experienced by people ... Time and Memory features personal observations and recollections by high-profile Australian writers Samuel Wagan Watson and Vanessa Berry, who have researched and responded to the Museum’s collection, considering the themes from several perspectives. An introductory essay by Principal Curator Matthew Connell examines the history of time-keeping and measurement, our changing understanding of time, the issues around digital memory storage, as well as the concept of the Museum and its collection as a memory device. The book also features shorter essays on the significance of selected objects from MAAS authors, including Director Dolla Merrillees, Director Curatorial, Collections & Exhibitions, Peter Denham, Curator, Campbell Bickerstaff and other MAAS curators."--NewSouth Books website.
