Did your parents ever measure your growth on a wall? Weiche Wu transforms this common practice into a visual and aural experience with his new piece, The Memory Container. Its first component, The Weight Recorder—a scale with an attached “life-tracing” pencil—creates, over time, a visual record of the body’s history; its circular patterns resemble a tree’s rings. The second component, The Height Recorder, functions as a traditional yardstick, providing a surface on which to track vertical growth. Eventually, The Height Recorder is meant to be cut into fragments and re-assembled as a xylophone–a final product that musically elides years and physical chapters.
