In Albin Skaghammars personal essay Gone memory merges with video pieces, movie classics and detective novels. In it we encounter a number of subjects and stories. From the death of Greek tragedian Aeschylus to slapstick cinema, tearful Tumblr blogs to mourning artists, early detective fiction to dreams of the perfect heist. In Gone we also meet the I who is writing about all these things. Who himself is searching for connections – like a sleuth – by trying to weave personal memories and anecdotes together with works of art.
