The musical wine bottle photo  is one of my meaningful objects. The female dancer is dressed as a ballerina. As the music plays, the couple dances.

The bottle belonged to my grandmother, Nanny. She was “everyone’s grandmother.” I created a series of stories about her and assembled them into a bound album. Later I created a short video to share more of our family’s memories of her.
