I moved to the United States about four years ago and have been thinking about themes such as transplant, transition, and context. At first, I thought about these concepts in a practical and mundane way. The logistics of moving from one place to another, what it meant to start anew (figuring out where to shop, for example) and how to make new friends and start (re)building a social life. As the practical elements started to settle deeper questions about belonging, and what it means to be grounded or ‘at home’ began to emerge. I enjoy journaling, and sometimes I will create mixed-media entries. So, the sketchbook project seemed like the ideal medium to explore these questions. I also liked knowing that once I completed my sketchbook I would release it, send it out into the world of possibility.
