An installation in response to Alzheimer’s disease. A series of wire and paper ‘memory cells’ were created. Memory cells were both empty and full and hung together as a large network, portraying the overwhelming sense of empty memories that engulf the remaining thoughts, and the disconnectedness between thought processes.
