Memory Forest, an installation by Eden Unluata-Foley
From the artist:
Memory Forest is centered around the idea of human memory, and the recall of memories. The main element of the installation is a series of ceiling hangings that are made from fabrics – discarted sheets and clothing etc. They are all braded and knotted together, with found object inclusions.
Through out the “forest” I have placed augmented reality trackers. When scanned using Augment app (Available for free in all phones app stores,) these trackers will lead audiences to digital objects, online games or online content which can be accessed through smartphones.
