This thesis is based on my personal relationship with ceramic fragments, and the
investigations on how different physical and imagined collages echo space, time,
memories and experiences. I observe how material memory impacts the
reconstruction or interpretation of the totality, through interviews. I investigate the
significance, perception of totality and different perspectives of a fragment, through
theoretical discussion and case studies. My ceramic practice is the path for exploring
the resilience and agency of materials – clay and fragments – in the assembly of
compositions, elaborating possibilities of wholeness and reconfigured value.
