This work considers the nature of spoons as objects of intimacy, caressed by hands and lips, and shared among various users over time. In attempting to capture an image of each spoon, some of its details are lost while others are exaggerated. There is an element of distortion in this process that mirrors the distortion involved in the act of remembering. By enlarging the image to the scale of a viewer they act as stand-ins for the various users who have interacted with each object over time.
