My project examines the relationship between five, female family members’ nostalgic memories and objects that hold important meaning to each individual. The heirlooms informed the visual design elements and principles for five zines I created that explore human memory and personal belongings. The five, female members include my Nana, Mom, Aunt, Sister, and myself. Through interviews I quickly learned that the objects they pinned as their most valuable objects are all attached to a certain memory and also a female family member. My project focuses on interpersonal relationships and memories by closely examining the value behind the five specific objects. This project will remind us that value is found in the meaning and memories behind personal objects.
