The Lenape called Staten Island Eghquhous, or “The Bad Woods.”  Why?  Bad in what way?  Souvenirs purport to help us remember a place. But at the far reaches of an island that calls itself the “Forgotten Borough,” the act of forgetting is perhaps what should be remembered. Our souvenir is a memento of the flow of time, the turning-over and covering-up of figures and events that continue to shape Staten Island Community District 3.  

Following our wayward unconscious, we accumulate our memory-images with a lack of discernment and a distrust of consistency. We’re drawn to mythic events as much as weak, or inadequate, symbols. Failure, banality, and things that are concealed have a special poignancy. Swirled together, geologic time, millennia of indigenous cultures, Dutch, British, and American epochs flicker in a timeless present. The past and present coexist as ghosts, all of whom think of themselves as eternal.

Subjective memory, like a souvenir, is necessarily reductive. Forgetting, or casting off information, is critical to the process of forming a clear image. But here, the murk of forgetting takes on a shape. The other figures fade. All reduces to a thicket of incomplete memories: The Bad Woods.
