Recordatio from the Latin language means recalling memories and this is what my diploma work is about – you, me, us recalling memories and seen what left of them, Teddy bears are real help in that. I am sure you had one too .
The aim of this work is to provoke memories, and to compare how the modern world would perceive them, an almost universal subject, that crosses generations, divides and unifies individual experiences.
In learning to value our memories and their advantages, we can learn to understand ourselves and our identities. In my opinion, it’s a very positive aspect that every generation has its own views and understanding of these memories, that they can be used to share and expand socially, which have also, allowed me to learn and to grow.
Work was made in Riga, Latvia.
