Objects are vessels of reminiscence. They can help connect us to the greater world around us, through aiding in communication and human connection. Particularly when distance is a factor between individuals, we inject meaning and memory into these artifacts of correspondence.
This series is a study of objects that travel between locations to facilitate communication, while incorporating the notion of ephemera and capturing nostalgia in these conventionally disposable items.
The act of incrementally hand weaving and stitching these pieces is juxtaposed with the temporary function of the articles in question. The implied presence of handwritten text paired with woven photos invites the viewer to add their own personal narratives into the abstracted information.
