Through my artwork I aim to explore the subject of memory and presence in installation spaces. This subject matter has been inspired by my personal experience with grief and loss. I have employed my skills of felting that I have established throughout my visual art degree and attempting new techniques of boiling organza and dyeing to establish a space that is intricate and evocative. Through the use of mixed media I have tried to create an installation
that helps my audience to develop a connection to someone that has died. By exploring presence and absence of those that we have lost through the theme of memory, my audience will be able t gain an emotional and physical connection to their own experience of grief, loss and those that have died.
