Nostalgia is the presentation of my thesis work for earning my Master of Fine Art degree at the State University of New York at New Paltz. My thesis focused on nostalgia as a defense mechanism:
"The mass amount of information available at our fingertips through the internet is revolutionary, but the intangibility and ephemeral nature of what we see is frightening—where is the record of our pasts kept? . . . Real objects with evidence of use and evocative of fashions display this record in ways pixels cannot. . . . Through replicating these objects into new versions of their originals, they become iconic in nature, providing both poignant association and open-ended interpretation as they interact in static mass."
