By equating memory with breath and the body as container of identity the boxes embody fundamental aspects of our body-selves as identical, portable, technologically augmented objects. Each stand-alone box contains a fragment of an interview with an Alzheimer’s patient, losing their memory, forgetting what they’ve forgotten. “When you get sick you go where? You go, oh, oh, oh…” “I can’t get my clothes all hung up…” “I knew there was something wrong with me…” “I kept losing my job and I’d go out and get another one…” Fragments of identity embodied in language. Fragments of language embodied in plastic boxes that glow with the voices as they discuss their confusion. Each box contains an electronic circuit, a sound chip, the ability to play and record, and a light calibrated to the volume so they seem to speak or breath with a life of their own. The identity of the voice is thus embodied in a generic, cubic chamber that glows with personality and light. Each box sits on a speaker, providing its own portable amplification chamber. This allows the performers to create different spatial juxtapositions between the voices, the sounds, by simply crossing the stage, and weaving the identical looking people-boxes in and out of each other to create a rich tapestry of embodied voices. At a certain point, shifting from one automatic process to another, the memories that replace each other are themselves replaced with the performers’ breath. The performers literally record their breathing on top of, replacing, the recorded voice, and leave the disembodied breaths to flicker in the space. Breathing, thus is used to signify parameters of the self and we ask what is ultimately left of a person, once memory has been stripped away.
