Installation at the Phoenix Art Museum and Modified Arts Gallery, Phoenix, Arizona. Embroidered thread drawings on mesh.

This installation expand the relationship between physical space and memory space into a complex circulatory system, using transparent layers to map my own experience of migration and physical displacement between different continents, countries, states and cities. The piece is of timely relevance in our current economic conditions, with the large percentage of displaced families nationwide. As well, it references the ongoing migratory patterns across the country and particularly Arizona's own seasonal in-flux and out-flux of diverse populations.

This project was partially funded by a grant from the Contemporary Forum of the Phoenix Art Museum.
