Dinner Party Series
The Dinner Party Series started as a means for documenting work, current relationships, and settings in my life. Years ago, I was gifted a book for documenting the people that were important to me. Upon receiving this gift, I smiled politely and said, "thank you for the gift". Then I immediately forgot about it! At the time, I thought I would have the same people in my life forever. Obviously, this was long before I finished college and moved multiple times. I have since experienced new apartments, new towns, new roommates, and new friends while not always getting to maintain the same type of close relationships with people I once took for granted. This led to a need for documenting the current people and settings I interact with daily. A lot of my work comes from reflecting on interactions with those close to me, so it felt fitting to have some sort of documentation with some of those people.
