The human body is the only definite home a person can have during their life, although, the body is ultimately indefinite in terms of mortality. In a society that describes a home as a material living space based on outward desire my images act as an introspective rebuttal. These images are a metaphor for my personal definition of what a home is. In my life I observe my body to be the vessel in which I transition between past and present. This project ultimately serves as an emotional response and record of my life experiences of moving, growing, and learning. Think of them as visual catalogs of my past much as a scar can act as a reminder of a past trauma.
