For Keeps will be a growing collection of small series' and a review of the connections we accumulate by holding onto heirlooms and other objects in attempts to facilitate remembering. As a long time collector of sentimental objects, this project is introspective and has me questioning if I am capable of keeping the memory without the possession. An old concert ticket, a magnet from that really great trip, Grandpa’s old hats, the armchair everyone wants to sit in at Grandma's…so many memory baubles! I’m sure you have a few.
This is an ongoing exploration of connections and I’m open to the idea of my community members joining me on this project. Please get in touch and we can discuss how your idea of possession and memory could become a piece in the For Keeps Collection.
