About – Memory can affect who you are as a person

- Different choices will have different results
-should people be curious and know what will affect their life?
Memories can be recalled by many moments during one’s life. Different kinds of memory and experience formed the way of thinking, and the body language will remain you the message that relates to memories. Memories can be described as Legos, and overlap over and over. That is like our awareness.
A plaster piece in a geometric shape that colored with black and white acrylic; with two pieces of baby blue and white yarn by using the technique of crochet as a decoration with fabrics woven in the crochet piece.
A piece of public art that connects the relationship between life and memory. Memories can be recalled by many moments during one’s life. Even some little things will make you think of the deep memory inside your mind. Can memories become a supernatural power that affects a person’s behavior; something that can influence a person’s life by making decisions based on good or bad memories? If we think of memories formed as a shape, it can be a geometric shape that contains a different story if you view it in different ways. It is hard or even impossible to change memories, same as the shape unless you break it. Memories can be positive or negative; just like black and white color to create contrast in a simple but clear way. A symbol of good and bad memories and decisions that happened during one’s life. However, the technique of crochet represents patient and intersects. The soft and sturdy touch is like a protective layer that isolates and relies on those memories and decisions; it attracts the person to find colorful sides of life outside for them to explore and learn.

What is crochet?
Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook.
Imagine memory is a system. Different kinds of memory appear in life that connects an invisible line for us to react. This piece of public art is for people to see and make interaction. It is like a hanging sculpture where I want to hang it inside the school. People can touch it. I hope this work can make them think about the meaning of the piece and how it remains them of their memories.
