Steven Marshall's work explores the ideas of environment and historical objects as systems of memory. The subtle difference between what is memory and history is often ephemeral and isn't always considered until the moment when a material representation exists. As environments change, some relics of the past, in the form of buildings, monuments and memorials, have been swept away, taking history with them and leaving only memory.
