Memory Box II: An Installation
Kelowna, BC

Memory Box II: An installation is based upon the original and much smaller Memory Box.

This installation occupies approximately 2,500 square feet and utilizes two 16mm projectors which project looping images from old films onto the two 20' x 11' HT plastic walls. A plinth that holds magnifying glasses stands outside of the entranceway and invites viewers to investigate the interior. Again working from the site that the Connections Series is based upon, the floor of the interior space is covered with forest floor material and a young tree and branches that were found dumped at the site. Once inside, the viewer is aware of not only the sound of birds, recorded at the site, but also of the smells of the forest and upon close examination moth cocoons can be seen suspended along the upper edges of the ceiling and the sound of live crickets can be heard from under the trees and branches.
