Drako Zarharzar remembers working with Salvador Dali, but he doesn't remember yesterday. Funny, charming, exotic, and oblivious to others, at 76 he lives "completely in the now" following brain damage that robbed him of his ability to create new memories. To compensate he has created a beautiful, shocking 3D autobiographical collage that fills every space in his tiny flat - so if you enter his home you enter his mind.
