Magpie depicts my life and memories through the collection of physical objects that I put into my "memory box". Throughout life I have collected items that carry deep personal meaning and memories. Physical memorabilia helps us to never forget. Never forget a key memory, feeling or sense. I can hold onto these memories but now, I feel I must dispose of the physical. Magpie catalogues each item from the box as it was unpacked. By photographing and cataloguing the objects, the photographs take on the physical and sentimental attachment, evoking the memories that were associated with the material objects. By viewing particular objects the viewer is transported to a significant event in their lives, educing their own feelings and emotions.
