The following is an excerpt from an interview with Deborah Aschheim at the Mattress Factory on August 22, 2006:
"In my family there is a strong history of Alzheimer's and it seemed like the thing that I wanted to do next, was also the scariest thing for me- to do more autobiographical work - something where I would be dealing with the networks of memory, but also incorporating my own specific memories, autobiographical memories and how memories come up almost involuntarily. I am really interested in things that are both literal and metaphorical. When I think about the neural networks of memory, of memory, they're kind of like models that can be described as webs, as nests or branches - all metaphors. But, there is also a physical network in your head of synapses that are created when you encode, store, and retrieve memories. Hopefully when you come into this piece, you're aware of the story I am telling you. I deliberately tried to choose stories from my life that are ubiquitous, stories that can relate to other people's stories."
