Liquid Memory is a part of a bigger collaborative project with Raya van der Kroon which is called "Weirdo" – a visual collection that aims for the metamorphosis of our childhood insecurities. Metamorphosis describes itself in biology as “the process of a great and usually sudden change of form during transformation, from an immature stage to an adult stage” (Merriam Webster, 2020). As the cells in our body completely renew themselves every 7 to 10 years, we become a new version of ourselves. Where we all act as physical shapeshifters, ‘Weirdo’ wants to highlight the mental change of shaping our personhood, by looking at what made us feel weird during our childhood and turning that into something beautiful.
