Constructing a Memory House: Preserving the Past through Personal Relics
I am interested in the ways that one remembers, what triggers the retrieval of a memory and the associations made throughout that process. Using photography, I explore my personal memory and the connections that are made with certain objects. By constructing environments specific to each object, I attempt to create a narrative of the life and significance of them. Using a dollhouse as a stage, a dialogue is created between the objects and the place in which they reside. The images heighten the relevance a home and the longing for a consistent environment have played throughout my life.
