'Objects to Remember You By: An Index of Sentiment,' is an ongoing project by San Francisco based Resident Artist artist, Kija Lucas.
Kija Lucas invited members of the Pittsburgh community to bring their sentimental object[s] to Bunker Projects to be photographed and added to the Index.
We carry objects through our lives, attaching memories and meanings to them that surpass their initial usefulness. Something held by a loved one allows us to feel close to that person, even without their presence. While these objects can offer a sense of safety or closeness, they can also be heavy and difficult. When creating a place to live, we commonly introduce these objects to make our spaces our own and to remind us of what matters from our past.
