Memento Project 3

Based on one of my own mementos , a plastic pregnancy sick which was the first confirmation that my daughter existed,  and I felt a beautiful form in itself.   I wanted to remake this stick into something that looked precious, and so reflected my feelings about it.

It was remade into this jewellery- like object, using 3D printmaking, and from a form made on computer aided design,  It is gold plated  and contains two pearls from my mother’s broken pearl necklace, which had been in turn left to my daughter.  This seemed to unite the three generations in the piece.   I chose the black and red box as it felt very womb like, and so seemed to fit the project.

Restoration

A series of studies in film of our relationship with mementos this film related to my own memento of my father.  Given by me as a child  to my father for his Birthday, and carried by him for many years before he died.  The process was like getting to know more about him through an adults eyes.  The film plays with time reinstating something as was then bringing it back to the present.
