Migration is a phenomenon of the physical. A body that moves from place, a point that bounces from X to Y in space. However, the migrant also has memory, and that is where the fundamental weight of its absence resides - in the echo of a frightened voice that rings in a non-place: I have left… I don't know if I will return.
