“This work is part of an ongoing documentation that chronicles the path of a family’s immigration, starting in 1917. I’m interested in patterns of cultural and social migration. I draw comparisons to the status quo by juxtaposing researched archival imagery with overt digital techniques and formal material choices. This work is both universal while personal; nostalgic yet rooted in the digital age. These documents depict a time and place as worn histories made monumental and tactile; establishing a loose narrative of faded colors, and blurred memories. These are the marks left behind of people who do not identify with a nation or state; they adapt, merge and blend, fluid and dynamic.”ImageImageImage
