'Objects of Affection' student art exhibit inspired by nostalgia

“I take these remnants and make and destroy, make and destroy,” said Forys. “I love the constant flux.”

The fabric sculptures, or “unmades” as Forys calls them, were a part of “Objects of Affection,” her final exhibition as an MU graduate student. The installation was a mix of paintings, quilt-like hangings and fabric sculptures designed to provoke the viewer to “rekindle suppressed memories and feelings through the power

of objects,” according to the information about her show.
