This project came about in response to the media and public frenzy induced by two wealthy strangers deciding to get married. What is it that prompts us to celebrate, commemorate, commiserate and grieve alongside people we’ve never met and are never likely to? Who decides who is important enough to commemorate and who isn’t? With these thoughts in mind I decided to challenge our perceptions of ‘celebrity’ by designing and producing my own commemorative mug to be placed alongside those of the other ‘strangers’ that people were rushing to commemorate. This blog is to record what happened.
