Esther Wong The Little Things Hold the Biggest Memories

Memories, big or small, are kept and stored in the heart of our minds and can remain with us for eternity. My body of work was inspired by the memories I’ve created with my grandma, who has cared for me from a very early age. I associate many of my memories of my time with her with objects from her home. They may look ordinary to a stranger’s eye, but they hold a very personal meaning for me.
