Using a specific site, a related text (poem, biography, song, etc.), and a recovered history as the core of each series, she develops projects that engage audiences in a dialogue about power, agency, and social transformation through art. Her research involves studying available archives, as well as interviewing community members and leaders. This research leads to explorations of architecture, text, and narratives that translate into artworks that reactivate these lost narratives.The connection between the materials, the formal aspects of the work, and the content is crucial to the storiesโ€™ retelling: materials, colors, and patterns are the visual language through which viewers can access these lost histories.
