In this project I used a folding packaging container to construct a type of portraiture that is engaged with a person’s memory. I choose to begin this project by creating two self-portraits. The chosen container is modeled after an English Breakfast tea box that exemplified for me an object of nostalgia. The container form has been scaled up so that it relates to the scale of my own body. These two pieces embody the way in which memory operates. Memory often degrades. Some scientists believe that the memories that you recall the most often are the most distorted. The nature of this work is to have moveable parts so that the structure is always changing, with panels that fold in and unfold. The dynamic structure and the transparent and reflect qualities of the material reveal different permutations.
