hunterdon county (2021)

Time, memory, and truth are iterative. Communal memory, generational memory, and individual memory intermingle; hunterdon county is a reiteration of those memories, an endless copy. By using a mass-produced map as the basis of this piece, and incorporating my grandparents’ voices, their record of importance, and their memories, I transform the traditionally cartographic into something more fluid. The rituals and pathways of my grandparents’ thoughts are imposed on the map through notations, embroideries, and pathways, pointing to what was once present and what now has faded away.
