This artwork combines a cast of an antique gramophone horn and a cast of a spine. Combining this imagery creates a surrealist object that is about the connection between nostalgia, music, and memory. Songs played on a gramophone are ones of generations past. like memories, stories, and histories these songs live with us.
The use of a gramophone is a slower process to express music. it isn't a hundred thousand options to download tomorrow or a quick pop song, there is a slow process to winding up a gramophone, choosing a song and simply sitting to listen. With such a fast pace world, we lose sight of what is important and collective nostalgia fades. This is a metaphor for collective memories, histories, and connection to times passed.
