This piece consists of 6 boxes that contain items typically saved from childhood—, a German porcelain doll from the late 1800s, marbles found in the River Thames, a WWII model plain, stones, a feather, milkweed fluff. If one looks closely, they will see a child’s eye looking back at them, as each piece of mica has a photo transfer on it. Mica is a nearly translucent mineral which is believed to help one see oneself self and others more clearly and without judgment. It is impervious to heat and is widely used as a window in wood burning stoves and furnaces.
