hand sprayed paper, folding chair frame, pink bubble wrap, rocks spray painted gold
When I first moved away from Columbus, I got really homesick. Not only for the people that I left, but for the memories that I had created. I made this piece to commemorate my two girl friends, Amy and Sarah. Sarah would always make us bonfires to sit around, it became a symbol for a safe and joyful place. The piece has become a reliquary for my memory. I used my collage techniques to create the fire and my sister and I collected the rocks from the Olentangy River. I used lawn chairs and replaced the straps with pink bubble wrap.
