Lauren says: I am interested in how objects and materials inherently carry memory and meaning.  Museums are full of artefacts that have at some time in their life belonged to someone. Sometimes there will be narrative to accompany the object in the form of a label that informs us of the owner or user of that object.  This shirt belonged to my Granddad and I have used text from artefacts associated with him to heighten the sense of personal memory and meaning.
