According to a superstition from the place I come from, when you tailor clothes while you are wearing it, you are going to die. To avoid death you have to stage this dialogue: -What are we sewing? -A donkey. In another place, it is believed that if you tailor clothes while you are wearing it, you are going to lose your memory. Combining these two superstitions I make an effort to record the agony and the fear about death, the decaying of human body and which is the part of memory. As I try not to forget, I can prevent the death from coming, as I enable memory I keep the death away, protecting myself and body. So, without memory can we remain alive?
