My dream is to grow affordable housing from plants and to proliferate multilingualism.
My work explores the connections and tensions between place, language, and belonging. What does it mean to belong to and represent a place, to wrap it around you, to carry it with you? Smells, words, objects, a song - the unsuspecting mediator between here and there can cover time, distance and obscurity in an instant. The desire to venture into the wide world struggles against the longing for home. I think that places have spirits that get inside of us and become part of who we are.
