My mother died when I was 2 and I started to realize that all my memories associated with her are either constructed with objects (especially still & moving images) related to her or

我母親在我 2 歲的時候去世了，而我開始意識到所有與她的回憶，要麽是關於她的東西 (尤其是動靜態相片)，要麽是從別人聽到她的故事。這個項目開始時是去重新探索我的母親，但透過資料收集後 (收集相片和有關她的短片、她處理過的東西、她去過的地方以及曾與她面談的人)，產生了一種想和媽媽溝通的强烈衝動。
母親死後的肖像，依芙琳·鍾—詹內懷恩 (Evelyn Chung-Jenewein) 的作品啟發了我。這個項目是關於尋找母親的回憶。她在我兩歲的時候與世長辭。這件作品包含了不少小片段。而這些小片段都分別地否認我母親的死亡，重新捕捉了她的出現，編構我和她的共處，虛構了她的故事以及讓觀衆去熟悉我的母親。
