Photographed by artist
When Memento was announced as the theme of the 2017 Halstead Design Challenge I knew that I did not want my photographic element to be set in a frame of any kind. Instead, I chose to use etched and 3d gypsum printed portions of the picture I used to create my memento of home.
Images of flowers that fill my mother’s yard during the summer come to mind when I think about home. To create my memento, I used portions of a photograph that I took of some particularly pretty flowers in hanging baskets in the backyard when I was home for a visit in 2010.
