Genetic Memory is a performable sculpture that offers sensual interaction for the purpose of cultivating presence of mind. Often associated with daydreaming, this meditative action of sifting and playing with sand makes connections between muscle memory and conscious memory using the sensations of sound and touch. Discarded furniture remnants reference the clothing they once held and the bodies they once clothed, creating an overlap between indoor and outdoor, micro and macro, the living and the inert.
