Family memories are marked through the traces left behind when all that remains of the sentimental object is its dust outline. An absence is created when the cherished object is removed and the dust that covered its surroundings leaves a mark on the surface. The dust a metaphor for the love and compassion we have towards these objects, as we would let them sit and gather dust rather than letting go of them. These images depict the evidence of holding onto memories through documenting the traces with care and questioning the visceral fear of these objects disappearing.
