Item Summary

Title: shift
Authors: Ruchaber, Kimberly A.
Issue Date: May-2008
Abstract: The human body is a physical memory map. The body's surface offers observable evidence of life lived. Stretch marks, wrinkles, and scars mark events that have impacted the outer body. Memories etched by emotions, also find ways to manifest within the body. This thesis project, shift, captures the cartography of an individual's life experiences. Using photography and interviews, moments of an individual's history are mapped. Emotional undercurrents point to the individual themes that are played out within each body. This work asks: Given the opportunity to reflect on ones own body, what would be remembered? What emotions are intertwined with these memories? What belief systems are currently in place because of the way one has remembered? Once thought patterns are brought forward into awareness, could or would a shift occur?
