Suitcases are strong symbols for immigration, but also for identity. They contain the things we're taking with us, as well as the ones we left behind, the ones that forced the escape. They witness the memories of our past and carry our journey itself. 'Suitcase of Memory' plays different sounds I collected together with a young man who had to escape Syria. Sounds of his past, of Syria, the revolution, the war, but also a life that he had before everything became a nightmare. Every time the suitcase gets opened another sound of those memories plays. A light sensor controls the tracks and volume. The wider the suitcase is open, the louder the sounds.
