When we leave our homes, we often carry with us special things that remind us of where we are from, or the people and places we leave behind. We use objects to remember but also to provide moments of familiarity and comfort in a new place. Kerianne Quick’s installation consists of 30 objects produced from 3D scans of personal artifacts belonging to San Diego residents. Each personal artifact was carried by someone who relocated to San Diego to make a new home. 3D printed in clear resin to create a blurry ghost version of the original, they appear as apparitions, fragments of low-resolution memories that tell a story about where the person came from. Collected over the past year from residents all over the city, these are objects of sentiment, longing, and comfort.
