‘Objects that occupy our daily lives are in fact the objects of passion, that of personal possession.’ Baudrillard

The passion of place depicted on UK and USA souvenir scarves were embedded within the felt structure. With the artist’s travel sketches threaded through the surface. Possessing fleeting observations of nostalgic escapism.
