Maryland Institute College of Art had its first ArtWalk, the senior graduation show, for the first time since the pandemic. For this exhibition, a 3D printed interactive art piece was installed for view. During my semester abroad in Florence, I was a tour guide at the Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral until my time abruptly ended due to the pandemic. Even before the pandemic, the Duomo served as a place for grief and consolation. The recent events in my life frantically unraveled material and immaterial possessions I took for granted, inspiring me to focus on memory and loss. Items are lost forever and events pass by without us being able to rightfully process what happened. Recreating the place I once regularly inhabited what seems like a lifetime ago, the Altar for the Past serves as a cabinet of curiosity to house a collection of memories.
