Graphic Artist Marie Young, has spent her MFA archiving a music equipment collection left to her by her Husband John Young, who sadly passed away in 2013. Marie now feels more comfortable parting with these treasured objects that she is unable to use.
“Each image distills a moment of our time together; they are a combination of musical instruments and shared memories of ours as a couple. The more you knew us, the more likely you are to understand what each image may be about, if you didn’t know us, then I still hope the images communicate our sense of humour to you!
By sharing this personal archive, I hope to make people feel more comfortable and open to discuss such issues as death, loss and responsibility. It is also my hope that ‘object’ might help others who find this way of working creatively with sentimental objects helpful to them also.”
