The project MNEMOAWARI deals with the processing of memory as a physical and virtual phenomenon. Each "mnemonic place field" is a digital preservation of transient matter into a virtual memory field. The projected 3d models, generated through a photogrammetry process, captured ice sculptures composed of plant materials at their original frozen state. Despite materially melting away, their digital artifacts remain in an eternal virtual rotation while occasionally receiving visual interruptions from current data. The project seeks to ask: Is it possible for our digital databases to preserve our changing ecological landscape?
