David uses his own personal objects and symbols of his past to examine ideas of nostalgia. Names of his childhood friends and baseball cards from the 1970’s, Sony walkman’s from the 1980’s, views from early traffic cameras in the late 1990’s; he has used all of these images in various forms to reflect on the passing of time and how we choose to record it.
