Gathered Memories, an exciting concept arose whilst developing work for my final degree show at Winchester School of Art. The installation suggests how memories twist and turn and bounce back when we least expect them too. The dyed silk strands undulated with gold thread to suggest how precious are memories are as Bourgeous suggests form part of our DNA. Following the degree show I was asked if I could create a much larger installation for the Theatre Royal in Hampshire. As this was a large project I invited several Artists to join me http://www.gathered-memories-trw.tumblr.com
This was an exciting project touring to five different venues.
A new project is being considered to develop this installation on its final journey.
The ‘Gathering Memories’ Project has been launched. All monies raised are in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
The beginning of the project started in May 2016 with the criteria being put together and sponsorship sought. It has been very exciting putting the kits together. Thanks to the Team
