About this project

A collaborative Jewellery|Photography project by Anastasia Young and Lindsay Cameron

Taking inspiration from Nineteenth Century engraved mourning cards, the project uses a combination of handmade and found objects to create dioramas which capture narrative fixed points in an infinite, stormy landscape of the subconscious.
The deliberate use of altered scales, perspective and substitution of emblems within the photographs creates a tension between the objects, their implied relationships.
