Girlhood Nostalgia


As a third year student at University, the feeling of aging and becoming an adult has become more apparent. I haven't lived properly at home for 2 and a half years and soon it will be time for me to give up my bedroom for a guest room, office, or whatever my parents want to use it for. I will have to move out, get a job, and become an adult. Nostalgia and homesickness have become daily emotions. This inspired me to create a project based on my childhood — a time when I would play all day on the weekends and stay up late on a school night under the covers reading Girl Talk magazine. I wanted to create this work not only for myself however, but for other people to feel nostalgic too, by using the typical 90's girl toys that we all loved.
