Sand and Sky (Diptych), 2016

Collected, found and assembled materials in metal suitcases

17 cm (6 3/4 inches) height x 61 cm (24 inches) length x 31 cm (12 3/4 inches) width, each suitcase

This project is site-specific and inspired from the inherent relationship of the nomadic nature of how we have derived our materials for consumption; from the ancient Silk Road to our current time. This work honors the journeys, the places and the people that were encountered and are responsible for this process.

Grass seeds planted on Friday July 17th at 4:46 pm

The conversation in this work is in conjunction to the societal conditioning of marriage. This work was made following my separation, and the images and objects are symbolic of those moments.
