The Trace the Memory project demonstrates the use of shadows as a metaphor of absence of memory to give space to remind memory and deliver messages with a new experience.
In this fast paced world, it is difficult to pause even for a few minutes. If a web site takes longer than a few seconds to load in the browser, we move on to another site. Designers put a lot of effort into making things faster and better. However, our life has its own speed, our memory as well. We cannot control it: we live underneath its memory and emotion. These are valuable things in life.
In the Trace the Memory project, messages flow slowly because they follow the shadow and they take their time to revoke memories. These slow messages offer the audience time to meditate. Standing front of the shadow affords us time to rethink our lives, which are memorable and valuable. While the poem is revealed slowly, the meaning will resonate with the audience.
