The Foundlings is an exploration of memory and absence through the use of found objects and photographs. In this thesis, memory is understood through the use of the domestic space and the objects found within. The relationship of photography to memory is an integral part of this work. Specifically in the use of found and constructed imagery as related to the family album. The Foundlings uses sculpture, painting, photography, and projection to understand the place of the individual in both a contemporary and historical context.
