My work explores themes of time, memory, and psychological relationships that we develop with transient possessions and environment. I use photographs from my family’s photo albums and drawings of personal imagery to reflect on the associations, such as displacement and longing. Such as the impermanence of ownership over material items, our ability to re-envision precious memories waver and morph, influencing our perception of these same objects and spaces, and thus ultimately ourselves.
