OUR MEMORIES

Our Memories, unveiled as part of the 9th annual Governors Island Art Fair this fall, was an outdoor installation composed of three translucent sculptures involving the audience in unexpected ways. Recognizing the need to record one’s personal experience, these neuron inspired sculptures contained cavities in which the participants placed a color-coded acrylic “memory” stone. The idea was for a viewer to recall a powerful memory and then share the memory by depositing it in a sculpture. Memories were color coded into six primary emotive categories: joy, anger, love, sadness, fear and surprise. The sculptures took on the colors of the collective “memories” and transformed as the piece came to life and stored more “memories”.
