With these works, I use maps and borders as layered abstract spaces that lead us through experiences and memories of what is left behind in the journey of migration. Humans are sometimes forced and sometimes choose to leave home- the familiar and familial- for survival or upward mobility. My work invites discourse on how this displacement affects our collective experiences and aims to gather ideas on creation of connections and community.
