A guided tour of a home that never existed in one form but in many. My Great Grandma’s house on Aldama has shifted roles over the years, but always served as a conscious space, gathering those within whilst accruing collective memories. This piece is a visual representation of the experiential residue of remembrance, how its many inhabitants recall a household and how recollection crystallizes over time. It is an attempt to depict what it means to figuratively build a home out of various conversations with loved ones and an etching in the dirt.

All part of an installation including two 5x7 ft canvases, cataloging a dialogue I had at the house, along with a dirt etching of the home’s floorplan. The postcards were takeaways, with accompanying quotes from family members.
