Abstract

Through small- and large-scale sculpture works based on the house, projected images of family photographs, and drawings based on collected data, I am investigating the connections between place, time, and memory. I am asking the questions: How do we revisit the past in our daily lives? How do we connect our immaterial and ephemeral experiences to the physical world? What can we learn and better understand by investigating these relationships?
