Memory Well: a landscape of sand and clay, punctuated by small tokens of engagement. Memory well was a performative piece executed in the fall of 2016. For this performance I made caramel candies on site for an audience in exchange for a memory. The participants would eat the candy and soon after write the first memory that came to them, responding to the smell and taste of what they had consumed. Participants were then asked to place their memory without instruction of how or where to place it, with the exception that it must be located within the wells of sand displayed. What resulted was a piece that demonstrated the various ways in which memory takes shape, as well the correlation between sensorial input, memory and the construction of space. Such a project is representative of my interest and research on how our interior lives manifest in form, and how such forms influence, affect and respond to each other, shifting and altering how we perceive a landscape.
