My Family Tree
Technique:print Size: 700mmX1000m/ 2005
The family tree is a personal journey, learning about the people who make up my family,
a possible final attempt at documenting memories, photographs, stories, people and places spanning different periods
of time. Using maps, I navigate my way to the places I want to study and explore; my entire family is spread before me.
I merely place my finger on those seldom discussed, interesting parts. I chose five subjects which are
translated into five double sided maps- one side is always informative, text-dependent and contains memories of different people. The second side is my interpretation of the first side; it is personal and maintains the dynamics between me,
my family, and the place I am connecting from.
