I am fascinated by the way we adapt to change and are continually reconfigured by our experiences and the world’s influences. We may want to cover up those parts of our lives, but their remnants are always there, often peeking out from behind a front we have created.

I digitally printed a NASA JPL radar image of Sumatra, Indonesia onto fabric. This background image depicts how the tropical rainforest is being impacted by human activity. The native forest appears in green, while pink areas represent places where the native forest has been cleared, much of it for palm oil plantations. I patched and mended the pink deforested areas with hand-dyed and hand-stitched batik leaves, symbolically envisioning hope that we will be able to repair and strengthen our global environment for future generations.
