In my work I play with various kinds of documents and objects that are connected to my personal history and the landscape where I grew up. The garden that I explore in my pictures is an environment that was once shaped and planted by my relatives. The nature surrounding the house reminds me of continuity. For plants don’t try to fool us into thinking that anything is eternal. Even the smallest things in nature aren’t actually still or quiet but constantly in motion and moving forward. The connections between all living things fascinate me. How collective memory is endlessly recorded in nature and the body’s DNA as well as objects and spaces.
