TRACES

Traces

Traces is a virtual reality experience that explores the memories of Willie White, an 88-year old woman living with dementia, as she recounts her time as a young girl living in the fields of Mason, Tennessee. As her words transport us back in time, traces of memory fall in and out—the old farmhouse where she was raised, the coconut cakes her mom would make on Sundays, her favorite white dress, the hymns she’d sing in church.

Through these vibrant recollections, illustrated through re-enactments, we journey with Willie as she searches for the meaning of memory in this new and fragmented landscape.
