I was searching through lots of odd and old objects in my house and found this chocolate box. In it where was an aray of beads, needles, buttons etc but more interesting was that there where some negatives in there aswell dated from the 1960’s.
This intrigued me, and gave me the idea to look at post war nostalgia as a concept for the tabletop. Perhaps the lighting could reflect the age of the negatives. Maybe I could set a scene with this box and an old camera, and some of the developed negatives.
Nostalgia is defined as:
- a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time: a nostalgia for his college days.
- something that elicits or displays nostalgia.
