This past year has been particularly difficult for residents of nursing homes, who have experienced isolation and disconnect from their families and their locality. Today we encounter 'A Memory of Water', a project lead by artist Orlagh Meegan-Gallagher. Residents of Castleross Nursing Home, Co. Monaghan become immersed in memories of being beside or on the water, expressing those memories visually through a variety of mediums. Memories are sparked by objects sent from beyond the nursing home, like seashells, sand or family photos.
