Mneme is a Liquid Memory Scape. As a metaphor, it can be seen as crystallizing the process of my memory. This attempt at transformation between immateriality and materiality is not meant as a representation of an image but as an embodiment of the specific track of my condition in a time when my memory was quite ambivalent.


15 glass sheets stand in a glass bowl filled with chemical liquid (iron (II) sulfate heptahydrate). In between each glass sheet are an anode and cathode and each individual channel refers to a region of the EEG (electro-encephalogram machine). The brain waves are recorded and amplified for electrolysis. Thus the crystal is formed and grows in a time sequence.


Mneme is me.
