“Through the physical act of combining wood and rope to make assemblages, I explore questions surrounding memory, historical trauma, growth, perseverance, and integration. I examine memories from my childhood to understand how my initial relationship to wood and rope, as materials, has warped over time as I learned about slavery and how these same materials were historically used to harm or instill fear. The assemblages use this historical trauma as a contact point for the two materials, addressing the violence and fear many people of color feel on a daily basis, but also showing the possibility of growth and creating a new relationship between myself and these charged materials, that is more like that of when I was a child.”
