““Home(s)” is a response to the idea of reimagining home, and it explores the notion of feeling a sense of home in multiple places and with multiple people. Home as I experience it is physical, digital, singular, plural, abstract, concrete, in myself, and in others.
I began the process of creating this work by compiling archival material from my own collection of work and documentation that represented the various homes I have lived in and imagined. The images in my video are layers of film, paint, projections, video, text and digital processing. They include symbols of my multiple ancestral homes and the processes by which I connect to these homes, and continue to create home(s). This work is my expression of the multiplicity of home, and how we can create a sense of home beyond our physical surroundings.”
