Cast in bright white porcelain, the objects in Archival Nostalgia have been prepared for future discovery, while carrying with them the details of their extinction. Just as we uncover layers of information about the notion of value in cultures before us through stories and clues left by ancient ceramics and vessel shards, we uncover similar information from these cast objects. Preserving these objects is the same as capturing or suspending a feeling, or some nostalgic memory of a time and place in which each object played a role. Much like a photo, feelings and remembrances of a person, place, or thing are contained in their colorless, sentimental splendor.
