Remnants is a series of photographic images that explores ancestral identity through meaningful combinations of family photographs, textiles, and other sentimental items. This body of work deals with what remains of a person after his or her death, and how the living are left with these remains. The remnants left to us can be physical items like photographs, clothing, or treasured belongings. Or these remnants can be something more ethereal like memories, folklore, tradition, and culture. This work acts as a documentary expedition in search of both the introspective and archetypal themes surrounding the nebulous concept we label, simply, as “family.”

Ragged Textiles and Drawings
This installation explores the concept of the flag, of cloth, and thread as symbols of war and peace (or surrender). It is not for me to comment on politics, only to draw attention to what is happening in our world.
To wave one’s arms so that others stop moving.
