Heather Savard, MFA Intermedia: PATTERN 2451

May 10 - June 3

“Pattern 2451 is a research and process-based exploration of a tea set that I was given from my grandmother. The project is in response to my experiences of moving and packing my own things, and the objects from my grandparent’s house. I began this work wanting to know what it means for an object to be valuable enough to keep, and how we decide what to throw away. In this exploration of personal value Pattern 2451 investigates the origins of middle-class objects of luxury, the tension between the duty of safe keeping and guilt of discarding, and the current overwhelming abundant need to buy, as a form of self-improvement/optimization marketed in consumer culture.”
