Michelle Spetner

Thank you so much for this scholarship. It has aided me for two consecutive years to do large scale projects. This year I made an edition of 10 of a  24 page book of 10 intaglio drawings and 10 descriptions.

My work examines the way in which objects reflect and determine culture and memory. I am interested in nostalgia, and why objects transform perception and shape the way in which past experiences and places are remembered. Particular objects evoke nostalgia, and by identifying those that attract me, I draw the viewer into the constellations of my personal iconography.
