I experiment with print processes, installation, and collage to understand how memory is transformed through the labor of making and the insight gained through repetition. Collecting and transforming family archives recovers the intimacy between myself and the exterior and interior spaces that memories of home occupy. I am interested in how the dialectics of inside and outside, real vs. fictitious, and past vs. present dictate our relationship to physical and mental spaces. Translating these archives through different media serves as a metaphoric process for my fragmented memory and allows me to recreate experiences as my imagination recalls them. I honor the rhythm in reviving the past, arguing for the necessity of giving ourselves the time and space to reflect, remember, imagine, and possibly escape from the present.
