97 Orchard Street Tenement Windows-Lower East Side Tenement Museum, New York, NY

Memento was a pickling project organized by artist Tattfoo Tan. Photographs of mementos were submitted and the photos, representing "memories" were placed in glass jars filled with various fluids and solutions that, over time, either preserved or degraded the memento/memory held within. Memento was part of Tan's "Cuisine Du Jour" collaboration with an ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) class in the Lower East Side Tenement Museum's "Shared Journeys" program, which explored the contributions immigrants made to American cuisine.
