Frederic Gmeiner — Memory Shapes

Free Projects

Data-generated physical objects as personal memory storages, which emerged from individually recorded statistics of a person. All together they form a sculpture that grows along with a person's life like some sort of arboe vitae.

These archives may function as individual life documentation for oneself, for others or for following generations. As one person's memory shapes are in each case unique in their form of storage and appearance, the information recorded by them is not immediately accessible for new observers, but becomes only perceptible by giving intense attention to the object.
