‘To be creative, you have to do something.’ – Ken Robinson
The way we were:
Remembered history as a fictional setting involves a certain amount of research and a lot of remembering, but memory is so subjective. Many questions came to light as I drew on memory – my own and others – to reconstruct the world of the sixties. Some were deep and meaningful, like how does our identity influence what we perceive and remember, and others more mundane, like what did people eat and drink in the sixties…
If you happen to remember things differently, that’s to be expected. Who we are and what we’ve experienced determine how we perceive and what we remember.
