Disregarded/Discarded is my own take on a look at lost and found. I found that stereotypically feminine crafts like embroidery and darning are being taught less and now feel a bit lost and disregarded. Pulling connections to current life I found parallels with disposable face masks also being seen as only helpful for a short time before being thrown away. I wanted to show a way that even though both seem to be overlooked they are incredibly helpful and can create something visually appealing.

Stars is a project wherein I explore my own way of saving memories in ways I have kept through the years. I’ve kept an archive of these through writing memories on paper stars and taking disposable photos to capture moments I want to remember. Through this, I created a memory book to show a little of my own human experience and give an insight to my own nostalgia.
