The ability to express thoughts, diminishing vocabulary, loss of interest in daily activities, and hallucinations are symptoms associated with dementia. I want to create this experience by filling a medicine cabinet with objects from my mother’s life that once were important to her but are not anymore. Each object is painted matte black to represent her memory fading away. Her makeup, a Bible, and seashells are a few items on the shelves. The mirror is cloudy, and hard to see the viewer’s reflection to represent the mind not understanding what is being seen.
This project is about losing identity.
