I examine how relationships between people and objects are created and continues through contiguity every time one use or touch an object and through participation through use and memories. The aim is to continue a relationship and to keep a communication alive with people beyond time and space, then, now and henceforth. I take advantage of and transform the traces in an object that belonged to someone. Parallel I create new space for bodies to put their mark for the first time. I compare my work with the Nordic Museum's task to preserve the present for the future. But instead of the objects to be protected from contact I want them to be touched. I remove the function to access something else, a wordless communication. The object is people's lowest common denominator and a link between space and time. To touch an object can create memories that can not be reached only through visual senses. The objects in the Forget–me–not–collection are made to invoke haptic senses and work as ”memorials”. Like memorials they are collective and instil a sense of belonging that gives peace to continue into the future.
