I am intrigued by the past and feel compelled to reminisce and create visible connections between my personal memories and experiences, exploring the sentimental value of an object and the power it has to evoke nostalgia within an audience. Using a combination of found and personal possessions I am exploring the sense of loss I associate with an unwanted or forgotten object. By making subtle alterations and by altering the way they are displayed, through which I seek to convey my relationship with the objects and encourage my audience to interact with them also.

Work of art I would like to make

I am currently recording my interaction with objects on a daily basis in order to understand my relationship and obsession with them further. The outcome of this could form a large-scale scroll twisting around a room and interacting with my chosen found objects; the scroll containing my obsessive lists of my feelings towards my changing daily relationship with my personal, and found possessions. The audience would be encouraged to move among the lists and explore the objects in order to become aquatinted with my obsessive nature and to understand how I constantly feel overwhelmed by the objects around me.
