The Weight Recorder: The Synesthetic Recorder of Involuntary Memory
The Weight Recorder by Weiche Design Works.
This project seeks to analyse our body as a memory container that contains both physical and emotional experiences. By using two ordinary objects, a scale and a height chart, that translate biological data into a readable language which allows us to recall a particular experience or moment easily.
The scale and height charts might remain unnoticed in daily life but nevertheless, when encountered, they offer a significant ‘hint’. In this way, as long as people find interest in the objects, they will be touched and surprised. While people have diverse personal value systems, with this, everyone responds to the hint, not only the one who had the original experience. In summary, the aim of the project is to investigate the relationship between the body, psychology and an object, in terms of memory. Following this, the way memories, objects and human beings influence each other, will be analysed.
