Sculpture: Memory, threads of thought and image

Memory, threads of thought and image

Kathleen C. Cooper.  2017.  Welded steel, copper wire, galvanized steel wire, photographs, film negatives and photography ephemera.

This is difficult to photograph – inside are antique film negatives of various format collected from family members. (What looks like “movie film” is actually film negatives threaded together with copper wire.)

In this work I attempted to make the connection between memories and all of the ephemera and personal documentation we create and collect in our lives, much of it hidden away – possibly forgotten or fading – in boxes, files and storage – both physical and mental.
