Transitional Objects

There is constant cycling in living systems, and in these processes, life leaves debris. It gradually becomes unrecognisable, disconnected from its origin. What if we try and translate the pieces left behind into new stories? Maybe we'll find comfort in building a new story from our own debris, before it is completely recycled. In psychology, a transitional object is an item used to provide emotional comfort, especially in unusual or unique situations, or at stressful times of transition. The drawings in the ‘Transitional Objects’ series seek reassurance in the constant impermanence of life, and offer the idea of playing and creating new narratives... before we succumb to inevitable biological transitions of our own. The exhibition encouraged the viewer to find their own interpretation, and build stories from the series of fragments, objects, and handwriting presented on each piece in this series.
