Maps

 

Although a map represents a physical location, when we look at a map of a place we know, we connect this image to the memories and feelings of this place.

 I spent only one week in a Haitian Village, but the memory of the dirt roads and shanty villages are just as vibrant as the memory of my childhood home i lived in for 18 years. In my original large scale installation piece, 12 maps of many different locations were all connected randomly, representing the concept that no one place of existence, whether it be for a week or a lifetime, is more grand than another. Every location has an equal importance in my memory.
