Sentiment Debris is an exploration of biographical objects and personal narrative. This research examines the ontology of sentimental value, what biographical and sentimental objects are and how an object can impact one’s personal narrative. Through an audible-visual installation my intention was to separate the narrative from the object to further study object narratives and the ways in which one may or may not relate to sentimental objects. Furthermore, I have investigated how objects can become self-extensions, in turn contributing to a diversified and constructive understanding of narrative for artists, writers and the collective subjective. Sentiment Debris discusses the ways in which the past leaves an impression on the future and how sentimental or biographical objects acts as vessels through time and space; a preservation of nostalgia and an Ode to the value of narrative, thus, reinforcing a conjunctive concatenation, a story with no end.
