Recycled steel, light, magnets
Souvenir: An object acquired to link the owner to a past experience.
Souvenir is inspired by the phenomenon of Quantum Entanglement—as particles interact, their physical properties join into a single quantum state that is retained at the sub-atomic level even over long distances.
By taking a magnet, each viewer will take with them not only a psychological memory, but a physical memory as well. In addition, the viewer removing the magnet releases the potential physical movement of the light and causes a revelation not only for the one who has removed the stopper, but for all who are to experience the piece from that point on.
