The human mind is the most fascinating part of the body to me. I’m interested in researching how identity is formed by the presence of time and place.  As humans, we have the natural tendency to attach memories, feelings, and thoughts to a physical place, as well as, differing our view of our own identity depending on what point we are in our lives. This correlation between identity, time, and place is what my work looks to explore.
