Entry Description

IN DEDICATION is inspired by my grandfather's struggle with Alzheimer's disease. I experimented with different techniques and textures all inspired by the brain and the side effects of Alzheimers. The monochromatic color scheme, with matte black and the natural color of veg tan leather, is the darkness taking over the body and the memories. The crackle pattern is inspired by the structure of the neurons in the brain. The suede cord netting is a continuation of the neuron structure but the material makes it more tangible and a texture instead of a pattern. The molded face is a face trying to push through a memory, the symbol of my grandfather's struggle of remembering his family.
