I am compelled by memory-- both its role in our humanity and how it is constructed. Fragile and proven to be easily swayed, yet we rely on memory for evidence and validation. Each of the original photographs used in the series “Constructed Memories” was gathered into my possession over a course of years because I felt connected to the narratives on display. Employing transparent as well as found objects generates a collection of rituals, homesteads and heirlooms-- layered and sewn to construct meaning and documentary--creating a fabricated but still relatable memory.
