21 Grams
 

In a time where we are able to manipulate life, adjust the way that we look,
where the possibilities are endless if it comes to body enhancements,
there is one thing we still cannot answer, the unavoidable passing of life. Or can we?
21 Grams is a memory-box that allows a widow to go back to
the intimate memories of a lost beloved one. After a passing,
the missing of intimacy with that person is only one aspect of the pain and grieve,
and often remains unspoken. A difficult time for a widow.
This forms the base for 21 Grams. 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.
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
flowers on the inside of the cabinet. The key to this cabinet is also a golden collier.
So that she is the only one who can access the cabinet.
The urn offers the possibility to conserve 21 grams of ashes of the deceased
and displays an immortal desire.
If she wishes she is able to have an intimate night with her sweetheart again but
21 Grams is not just a way to tempt a person to revive an intimate night
but more important;
It displays an accusation against the unavoidable passing of life.
21 Grams speaks in metaphors, not in shock value.

人間の生命を操作できるのに、操作できないことが一つあります。それは今
でも避けられない「人生の終わり」です。あるいはそれも操作できるのでし
ょうか。21グラムは死に抵抗するメモリーボックスです。

このボックスにある骨壷は、男根形のガラスの中に入った黄金のカプセルに
亡くなった愛しい人の遺灰を21グラム納めることができます。

再び愛しい人とロマンチックな夜を過ごせます。

キャビネットに彼が使っていた香水、二人の音楽(表にiPhoneジャック有
り)そして彼女が最初にもらった指輪を置ける場所があります。

引き出しに涙を拭うためのハンカチがあります。鍵はまた二人の愛のしるし
の一つです。黄金のコリアーを首にかけると、鍵がちょうどあなたの胸
(心)のところに位置します。

21グラムは再び愛しい人と親密な夜にあなたを誘うだけではなく、避けられ
ない「人生の終わり」に対しての抵抗を示すものでもあります。
