In 2019, my grandmother learned she would need to move out of her home of 58 years as her brother who owned the house had passed away and his children were selling. This was bittersweet news as she knew it would be a difficult transition, but at this point in her life she didn’t need so much space.
She welcomed the ease that came with downsizing to a three room apartment as she lives alone. How would she to choose what to bring and what to let go, from the many things she’s accumulated over the years?
This project focuses on her new apartment and what she chose to bring to her new home.
