Objects serve as documentations of the past, and can be used to show the passage of time. They create connections between generations, between then and now. I have always had a fascination with antiques—objects that were once treasured by people who have come and gone. My family has a strong tradition of passing objects down through generations, including hand-spun cloth, quilts, serving silver, and books. These object create bonds with my ancestors whom I have never met, and inspire the sharing of memories and stories of times long gone. In my work, I bring the past to the present, transforming history into modern times. I reference patterns found within the objects my ancestors once owned, and which now serve as tangible remnants of my family history.
