Shroud of Memory is a quilt of seemingly insignificant items such as buttons, spatulas, hangers, hair combs, hand towels, and laundry tickets culled from daily habits and habitats that forge a connection between daily life and rituals of recollection — repositories of our personal memories ignored, invisible, and often destined for the trash heap. These artefacts, once exposed, evidence the routine, mundane facets of everyday life that cherished family photos or mementos cannot capture. In this gallery installation, small objects are cast in small resin blocks and strung together with stainless-steel wire to form a kind of shroud, characterizing the disarray and fleeting nature of contemporary life.
