Our relationship to objects and the objects that we choose to keep and collect interests me. How the narratives and mysteries that become entwined within objects affect and alter them and our perceptions of them. My own personal button collection comprising buttons collected over 4 generations intrigued me. I became interested by the stories associated with the buttons and soon discovered that other people had similar stories associated with their own button collections. The original work created in 2002 led on to the work ‘Button Plus’ which considered ideas associated with a combined object and memory.
