Annie Steinfeld

Throughout the year I explored the question “how do I convey nostalgia?” At the beginning of the year, through prompts that were meant to tease out our interests, I found that I was often drawn to pieces or objects that remind me of memories. This launched me into exploring nostalgia through artwork. All four of my pieces contain a physical aspect of nostalgia, like cut up pages of old books I inherited from my grandmother. I wanted to explore how I could represent the feeling of nostalgia through collage. Apart from just materials, I want the pieces to depict concepts that visually represent nostalgia. I used ideas like clocks, pathways, growth, obstruction of visibility, and maps to portray sentimentality. Particularly when life is changing a lot, it becomes easy to dwell on the past, so instead I wanted to represent nostalgia in a way that tackled and expressed it rather than wallowing in it.
