Reliquaries 

We go through our lives basing who we are off of our memories of the experiences that we’ve had. However, these memories tend to be incomplete, and as time goes on they morph into something else. We cling onto elements from those experiences and try to protect them from change, but we can't. These elements become the catalysts on which we form ourselves; they become an integral part of who we are, and what we build ourselves around. What happens when the elements that we’ve based our narratives off of degrade though?

These mixed media pieces have elements of them that will degrade at different rates and change how the pieces are viewed, thus changing their meaning. This is a metaphor for what happens when what we are begins to degrade and change into something else.
