2013, Paper collage, 11.7"w x 8.3"h

As a citizen of two distinctive cultures I find it hard to define where home is for me. Therefore, houses have become an obsession; they symbolize a stable existence I have never truly felt in society. The house I have focused on is that of my oma and opa. For a long time, this place was the epicenter of stability in my disjointed world. By using an analogue collage methodology combining images from both Canada and Germany, I explore the idea of belonging. With this process I create impossible maps and landscapes, fluid and changing works that reflect my own identity in flux.
