circa 1943

The very first project I created at the beginning of my graduate program, pulling personal experience and history, together with collective memories I try to bring the present to experience the past, to resonate, understand, to get connected with the never met grandmother. 

I used an image of my hair in the drain and found text from a book I first read when I came here to the US as my source of inspiration. Re-examining this relationship with my never met grandmother and thinking about who I am and where I am from, I try to make the material to tell the stories.
