The traumatic experience of disconnecting with my family as a young adult explains my sensitive responses to relationships and physical spaces. I left my homeland and began my constant search for cultural integration and adaptation. Being transplanted into another country introduces new sets of philosophies and de-structures all previous understandings of identity and community. The act of transplanting changes the physical borders between spaces, as well as the psychological and emotional conditions within them.
I am interested in the psychological response to existence, consciousness, and physical space in relation to domestic objects/ space. Similarly, the dialogue created between logical human emotions and familiar environments of domesticity also intrigues me. By altering common architectural spaces, the fragmented sites are psychologically transformed into non-sites, non-buildings, and non-places. They exist at the intersection of physical transit and mental displacement. This is the essence of my content. The works are an exploration of these malleable identities, and how individual perception influences what is accepted as truth.
