"Memory Box" is a video about memory and what can happen to it. We try to forget memories, we try to hold onto some, we morph them, and sometimes they're taken from us. This video is about a girl (Michiko Saiki) who finds her memory box and faces the memories that reside there. Do memories hold us back or are they essential to be happy? The video uses a recorded improvisation installation which involves a "room" where volunteers interact with the girl by leaving their own memories with her.
This video was a collaboration with Michiko Saiki. We would like to thank the BGSU Art Department for assisting us with facilities and for those who participated in both installations. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories with us.
