This work explores a person’s relationship to the culture in which they find themselves, while retaining their identity partly through their taught traditions and ancestors. She combines interior/exterior frames of structures resembling enslaved and track houses to create images that reference the continuous cycles of forced evictions, upward mobility, contagions, deaths and gentrification. She infuses reclaimed ceramic objects that reference multiple cultures produced at ceramic factories through the world’s industrial working class. Just as plants and animals migrate and deposit resources throughout their life cycles, humans migrate with objects and leave behind their objects that take on new meaning. This work depicts the responsibilities people hold to places, as witnesses of evolving communities.
