Memories of Objects

Memories of Objects

These images were part of a larger project where I asked people to donate objects they owned which had a memory connected to them. For example the giraffe was a small model bought by a friend in a shop in the Scottish Highlands during a storm whilst on holiday with his girlfriend.. All of the objects have interesting memories connected to them which I found by interviewing the owners. I then imposed images of these memories onto representations of the objects, using mono-printing onto paintings. I wanted to show how different objects meant different things and were seen as more valuable to different people.

This was found in a hoarder called Dez's garage.
