Is there memory embedded in textiles? Visual and tactile codes communicate stories, while steins, odors, and wrinkles are marks of their lives, showcasing their relation with the body and the environment. Thus, reflection on the past is enabled by these cues. But what if those memories could be dynamic, shape-shifting, and adaptive to emotions, touch, or the human voice? Could textiles transform into a new media for our digital archives, permitting recollection and access to these hidden memories? Could we reach a point where we trust our clothes memories more than our experiences? This installation explores how we can code and decode memories into a soft material, transforming memories into a new light base language.
