Thesis: the material of the moment

Listen to the thesis here:


This is a collection of works centered around a childhood memory. It is the earliest memory I have of losing a piece of jewelry. One of the first moments of permanent change.
There are several elements: the waiting room, the membership card and the lost ring. all of these element are made with the purpose of immersing the observer into this memory, playing with the sense of smell, sight, sound, and scale.
Together, they tell a story that aims to confront the viewer to examine their own relationship with the losses of growing up.
