The work is a metaphor for the body as an engram: a metaphysical cell within a complex structure representing the trace of memory. The work pays tribute to my sister who was lost to cancer. The work is a manifestation of a process that contemplates the binary of life as something profane and sacred and the contentious fragility of the body expressed through the conditions it is put through.
