Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso
If one person held fond memories of mine, just because they are no longer here , does that mean i can not create new memories involving them.
I will be taking out items of clothing, belonging to my grandfather and hanging them in settings which is un familiar to me.
Firstly, these places will be derelict, moving into outdoor settings, then into public spaces.
These will hang next to a written memory I have with him, along side the piece of clothing and photo. I will allow the public to walk up, touch, see and read my memory. documenting the interaction along the way.
He would laugh if he knew what I was doing, and ask me why im not still painting ‘those lovely paintings’ any more.
‘ava has a memory box’
I have been undertaking a new photographic series titled ‘memories’
As a photographer I am asking friends,family and the public to submit a picture of their memory boxes. This project can be followed on my sister blog here
Have you ever thought about taking a picture of your memory box? I did. So I thought I would
share with you a small piece of my past. I have more then one memory box, and I am happy
to share them all with you.
Im going to ask other people to share with me their personal memory box. Project to continue over time. watch this space.
