What do you do when you lose someone who is dear to you? We have all experienced the traditional ways to remember through funerals, burial rituals, and religious observances. These traditional practices have placed emphasis on marking the physicality of death, rather than the loved one’s life by constructing monuments, headstones and urns. While these ceremonies celebrate the notion of life and death, they typically initiate the process of saying goodbye. The issue becomes what to do when we never want to say goodbye. There are numerous approaches to memorializing the lost. The method that I have chosen to investigate proposes combining the traditional practice of constructing in remembrance, but places emphasis on the process of making. When you make a gift for someone you are forced to ask yourself, “what would he or she want?”. The process of answering such questions begins the process of recollection. The intent of this project is to create an alternative approach to honoring and remembering those we have lost.
