 A cross-cultural project between The Cass in London and Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem,
exploring meaning(s) of Souvenir and the embodiment of memory through objects.

Each student chose a place in their city, making a small material library from their knowledge and experience of that place for the overseas student to use directly or interpret.  Response to the gift and sharing of a design process was documented and communicated between identified pairs of students. These are the results, a series of objects and jewellery with resonance of memory and experience, sensed through communication with a fellow being from another country and culture.   Correspondence between the students took place through a range of platforms e.g. skype, whatsapp, Instagram, facebook, text and emails as well as through packages sent by post.
