Memories are something we humans hold dear. They can be a recollection of good and/or bad moments. The Definition of Nostalgia is a project that focuses on early Generation Z’s childhood memories and defines nostalgia through a curated visual language. This project gives a moment to recall and reconnect with our past innocence.

“Nostalgia” is an open-ended term, and each person’s definition will most likely be different. However, when viewed collectively, nostalgia can create a moment of interconnection. To accurately represent a generation that was born with popular media at the center of their lives, all five major senses are taken into consideration, building a collection that creates a definition unique to this demographic.
