I Made these words for you
a performance and Installation | Terrain Biennial | November 12th, 2017
I Made These Words For You is a performance and installation that explores the fluidity of memory through sensory experience. The performance site is comprised of 26 altars. Each altar revolves around a song that carries a significant memory. Together, the artists and the participants will build upon existing memories and create new shared experiences.
The chest of a memory rises and falls with each breath. Moments of oxygen fueled clarity are quickly followed by the darkness of an empty lung. These breaths move simultaneously through past, present, and future picking up loose particles and leaving behind trails of what we prefer to forget. As we continue to breath in and out, pieces of our exhalation find their way back into our bloodstream. They cling to sounds, smells, and tastes bonding to the heart of the memory.
