In a time where we are able to manipulate life, adjust the way that we look, where the possibilities seem to be endless,
there is one thing we still cannot answer, the unavoidable passing of life. Or can we?
After a passing, the missing of intimacy with that person is only one aspect of the pain and grieve. This forms the base for 21 Grams.
The urn offers the possibility to conserve 21 grams of ashes of the diseased and displays an immortal desire.
By bringing different nostalgic moments together like the scent of his perfume, ‘their’ music, reviving the moment he gave her her first ring opens a window
to go back to moments of love and intimacy. She is able to have an intimate night with her sweetheart again.
The cabinet functions also as an acoustic amplifier. In the back of the cabinet there is room for an iPhone, the music plays through the
‘forget me not’ flowers on the inside of the cabinet.
21 Grams is not only a way to tempt a person to revive an intimate night but displays an accusation against the unavoidable passing of life.
21 Grams : Poetic Justice is the second memory-box in this series, that allows a widow to go back to the intimate memories of a lost beloved one.
For those who saw the first edition as a taboo, or for those who considering getting even closer with her love, Poetic Justice gives one an alternative.
This memorybox also includes a poisoned cigarette that offers the possibility to
be eternally reunited with your sweetheart again.
