This body of work is an investigation of the memories and experiences of displacement. As a foreigner, I often find myself in a strange space between the familiar and the unfamiliar. I use various three-dimensional media to explore and depict these experiences, especially as they relate to my personal history. I overlap dreams and memories, varying the media and shifting scale, so that the line between reality and dreams gets blurred and one becomes both a viewer and a part of the installation simultaneously. Each piece represents a memory or a dream sequence that I have experienced and each sculpture is a vital piece of the puzzle, containing a bit of familiarity, suspension, and mystery - mirroring the complex nature of the human experience and psyche.
