STATEMENT: The Memory Artifacts series represents a collection of objects that I’ve saved over the years. Each object is a memory trigger to an event that has long past but somehow remains familiar through the object. I have kept these objects, using them to conjure memories, so that I can more deeply explore the hidden connections they reveal. This exploration will offer a new foundation and infrastructure for further study. Memory Artifacts (sampler #1) is a maquette from a larger installation to be unveiled later this year.
