'Forget Me Not'
Old tin, tintype photo and Victorian clock case
14" x 12"
The collectors purchased this old clock case and asked me to start thinking about making a piece for them to fit inside the case. They then travelled to Argentina to clean out their family apartment. While there, they came across an old, hand painted tin that included the sentiment "Forget Me Not" and soon after their return, their mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I declined to use the old tin for several reasons, but then the piece quite naturally evolved to be about memory, time, and remembrance.
