Fish Cans

Fish Cans memorializes a commodity object tied to the fishing industry that acted as a central precursor to Kelsey's father's life before making the decision to leave his home of Newfoundland. Transformed into something beyond commodity and disposable, the fish cans are presented as precious keepsakes alongside documentation of the memory of her father's presence at the fish plant. The relationships between ceramic fish cans and paystubs is one of dialogue, which acts to reveal a memory to the viewer.
