Phantom container
Piece concept (comment from the artist at the time of selection)
An organism's body is like a container meant to hold that life's existence in the world—acting as a shield between us and the world. The shapes of those containers are what make us unique. When considering this, something that caught my attention is phantom limb. Phantom limb is a phenomenon where someone who has lost an arm or leg feels intense pain or just the existence of that limb even though they shouldn't. We can imagine a lost body part with a memory from nowhere. Memories have no shape, but indeed are given one within our minds by our imagination. My piece sympathizes with the memory of a body part without a shape as if assuring it, and gives it form.
Piece introduction
This piece illustrates the lost body part of someone with phantom limb (the sensation of a lost limb still existing) inside the cube.
It brings back to life the memory of the body part which has been lost.
