Give Up The Ship

“Give Up The Ship”

This pillow represents my entire adult life. It is yellowed and stained with a decade of my sweat, tears and saliva. I placed a high value of sentimentality on it, a prize possession holding all the painful experiences that have shaped the person I am today. I gutted this pillow as a gesture of letting go. It is meant to act as a photograph would, freezing the moment of release.
