These Foolish Things
is a recent project by Niina Lehtonen Braun. In 2014, intrigued by a personal and psychological premise, she started collecting things that would remind people of someone special.
These things could be for example objects, sounds, smells, or situations. Under the title These Foolish Things Remind Me of You Niina conducted a survey to invite friends, relatives and attendees of her exhibitions to submit their personal memories.
For each returned thing she created a drawing or a collage. Small memorials that encourage you to start digging around in your own memory and think about the things that make you stop and think of someone dear to you.
