"Nostalgia in moderation may be a healthy indulgence. A comforting lie that we tell ourselves and
willingly buy into in order to adapt to an increasingly globalized, rapid changing world.
With this body of work I explore nostalgia experienced through escapism. a Study of the composition
of the language of longing and memory. Harking back to a past I can’t really remember but still feel
drawn to. A mishmash of neon and synth. Representing collective memories of 80’s and 90’s TV
shows and video games, which is associated with carefree times."
