Heirloom Recipe Cards

2016

This set of recipe cards is equal parts personal narrative and historical research. I wanted to explore the idea of an heirloom; how a physical object can be the link between existing memories and memories yet to be made.

These recipes have been passed down to me from my paternal grandma, maternal great grandma and other family friends. The front of each card is a pattern that is tied to colors, shapes, and environments I associate with the specific recipe. For instance, the wallpaper in my grandmother’s kitchen, the center of many of these recipes and a time capsule in more ways than one.
