        In the past ten years I have lived in seventeen different houses in eleven cities, traveled in fourteen countries, and twenty-three states.  I grow attached to not only the people, but also the physical places. Even mundane objects become holders of meaning. The texture, color, or placement of an object can trigger a vivid memory and all the accompanying emotions.

 

       Memories are as important as they are slippery.  They change, they are two things at once, they fade and they reemerge.  Unknown things can often seem strangely familiar, and the opposite is also true.  I am interested in how material shifts can emphasize this "both/and" quality as a way to explore the connections between the physical world and emotional narratives.
