Memoir is the first piece in a series of conceptual designs for exhibition. It is a place to store your memories, talismans and objects of desire. Its function is akin to hiding your most precious things under your bed as a child. It is a Bachelardian “store of dreams”; it will develop, change and grow as each physical memory is placed inside the cabinet.
Memoir is a depiction of my time spent studying in Tasmania. It is a time capsule for memories [physical objects] that are intended for both display [poking out] and secrecy [tucked away]. The cabinet uses folds of fabric to store your items, with an aesthetic reminiscent of freshly folded sheets stacked up in your linen cupboard. The use of the Tasmanian Oak is a representation of its ubiquitous use in Tasmania, from structural elements, to moldings, to fine furniture.
