"My work process consists of collecting objects that are found and shared within my community to expand the conceptual notions of the personal and shared family archive. I am interested in the intersection of shared experience and the instillation of found objects that create a collective space for mourning. My process considers the aspects of mourning that align with both the living and the dead within inner city communities. I hope to explore the intersectionality of photographic subjectivity and the construction of street-side-memorials within the history of American historical monuments."
