Soft Wear transposes memories of my body onto others' bodies through Augmented Reality temporary tattoos. Each tattoo features an illustration of a communication technology that has become antiquated in the last two decades (a floppy disk, a cassette tape, a flip phone, etc).
When a "tattooed" participant stands in front of the camera, AR software scans the unique illustration and triggers an animation of a memory to appear on screen. The tattoos remain on the body for up to a week, allowing the participant to carry my bodily memory with them after they leave the exhibition.
Soft Wear was shown at Authentication Error [SOLVED] at UCLA.
