“I miss your lips, your ear and the temperature of your finger. The body part models can recall those beautiful memories from time to time. They are not scary because the memories are sweet."
Body Memory is based on the hypothesis that the body itself is capable of storing memories, as opposed to only the brain. Sometimes, the memories that our body stores are not always memories that we are aware of consciously, such as sounds, smells, touches and so on. But those unconscious memories are not locked somewhere in the recesses of the brain. Instead, they are imprinted in our body, all the way down to the cellular level. Our cells store memories – information – about our experiences, habits, sensations, everything. Our skin, muscles, tendons, nerves are all accumulating this information as they actively engage in our daily experiences. For example when people shake hands: right/left hands, palm temperature, strength of the grip, eye contact, etc... all these small impressions contribute to our memories.
Base on this hypothesis, I made a series of duplicated cast models of my body parts which I transformed into accessories. These include fingers, nose, ears, nipples and etc.. In addition, there are different decorative ways according to specific parts, such as the ‘Thumb’ pendant with red nail polish; the single golden tooth in the ‘Teeth’; the ‘Ear’ brooch sporting an ear stud. Wearing ‘Body Memory’ accessories will help you create a funky yet eccentric style.
