This work loosely references nineteenth-century mourning jewelry. Corsages, like mourning jewelry operate as personal mementos, reminding us of a person or marking a past event. In some pieces a dialogue exists between the front of the piece and the back. This dialogue suggests the intimate nature between what is private and what is public. With this work I hope to create a relationship between the past and the present, reminding us of how memory changes over time and remains breathing in the present.
