My work over the past year has been inspired by rediscovered objects of my childhood. On an occasion when I was admiring my old ballerina music box and little toy bunnies, I noticed myself in the music box mirror- my gaze seemed so odd juxtaposed with the sweet little mementos I was holding. I wanted to recreate a feeling of past and present, childhood nostalgia and uneasiness confronting one another.
