In a Foreign Land
Immigrants in a foreign land carry with them reminiscence of their native home. Slowly and almost imperceptibly, what was once foreign becomes familiar and what once felt like home becomes foreign. The long-ago memories, once vivid and seemingly in order, begin to fade and fray along the edges of time, entangled between what was and what is.
Because memories are like fibers woven into our senses, the images in this series are to be taken as a whole with the presentation. The muted colors in some are meant to contrast against the saturated scenes in others to signify how some remembrances become exaggerated while others dim in comparison. That the images are printed on remnants-like silk fabric are meant to represent the softness and fluidity of memories and how the pieces become worn and discolored over time.
