Statement

This project is a result of nine months of research, iteration, process, and creation. My final pieces are vignettes of others’ memories of their most nostalgic objects. Each globe is accompanied by a personal story from participants to help give more explanation to each composition. In representing nostalgia, I found it easier to ground my project in something physical in order to bring my more conceptual research into the physical realm for my design work. I titled my project “vessel” because I felt that these objects all represent more than meets the eye, and they’re carriers of valuable stories and emotion.
