Collecting and transforming personal and found images and objects recovers the intimacy between myself and the exterior and interior spaces that memories of home occupy. These pieces affirm the moments I remember, to make real what time has since made malleable so I may take refuge in the space between pining and healing that absence stirs. 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.
