3-4 October 2009
A multimedia installation as a personal exploration of the idea of cultural displacement, memory, fragmentation, and identity. With a lifetime of movement between three continents, disparate places and their memories fuse together into a surprising new landscape, an impossible space at once magical and monstrous. Viewed through a hole, a sound and light sculpture unfolds inside an enclosed space (a lightproof booth), where video projections, paper, broken glass, and a fan combine to animate this "object-monstrum".
