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.
