We Entomb Memoir is a portrait of sorts. A series of process-based actions performed online with appropriated image macro generators, documented with sourced media and hosted by a free weblog service. It is media d├ętournement compiled and combined. Not quite a readymade, unmodified and exhibited within a context different from the one that was intended, it is a postproduction; its creation piggybacking on the work of others from outside the context of art (e.g. design, communication, leisure etc.). The form of the weblog and slideshow create a narrative of relation between the media employed.
