An installation of objects exploring themes of nostalgia and hand-made versus mass produced. The objects are created from left-over craft and home project materials saved from destruction by combining them into hand-made, hand-sized preserves. The intimate sizes and tactile materials make the viewer want to touch them. In contrast the objects are attached to mass-produced kitschy plaques and pennants that are designed to produce an artificial feeling of nostalgia.

In the age of disembodiment, I believe humans may struggle for the capacity to maintain a sense of self beyond the accompaniment of a personal technological device. The device can record, alter and preserve the user’s sense of self for them. In a way, the device serves as a personal mirror.
