The title of this work may seem to be a wink at Proust’s great novel, but actually references a Scandinavian myth. The Norse god Odin would send his two ravens, Thought and Memory, out daily into the world of man to bring back news of human activity. This work acts as a poetic metaphor for all of human strife and striving, our weighty self-importance transformed into something as ephemeral as thought and as fickle as memory carried on the flight of a bird’s wing.
