Using journals of my Great, Great Grandmother who came to America when she was 16 and my Great Grandmother who was 1st Generation American, I am creating work that relates past and present, old world and new world. Transferring their writings onto clay slabs like that of tablets in ancient times where cuneiform was inscribed, is a reflection on the stark difference of the past and communication today that is mostly electronic.
I also continue to investigate the repeated process of multiple copies in photography. Creating a photogram of one of their journal pages and making a copy of it, up to a 6th copy, where each represents a generation. With each generation, the written information becomes distorted and unreadable. This in turn reflects how information becomes diluted or lost from the passing of one generation to the next.
