Momentos & Thread.

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

For a stormy Tuesday, two sentimental - and completely devastating - art projects by twenty-year-old artist Lindsay Bottos-Sewell. In the first, titled I Don't Really Miss You, the artist reflects on lost love using "momentos and thread,"


while in The Morning After, she records "thoughts about the briefness of a hook up written in permanent marker in the places he touched."


These make my heart hurt. See more at Bottos-Sewell's website, here. Thanks, Dad, for clueing me in!

Those *are* heartbreaking! And yet, as a person who makes things, I know how extremely cathartic it can be to expedite healing. :)

This art project made me realize how little I think about certain ex-boyfriends, which then made me realize that people I think far too much about probably aren't thinking of me at all. My heart hurts, but I'm so glad you shared this!
