Preserving a short life
A memory is something that we retain in our mind, but we can quickly forget a memory or replace it with a new one. A photograph can capture a moment in time and freeze it, but just like a memory we can replace a photograph or simply loose it. With old photographs from my family's past I am bringing them back to life. By sewing living flowers into the image I am changing the photograph and the meaning into something new. The flowers symbolise time and how time can affect the image, the photograph/memory is fresh and new again, but for how long before it fades and becomes old and forgotten?
