Site: Yizkor is an in-process interdisciplinary installation that deconstructs the mythologies of my ancestral history and reveals lost and forgotten spaces left by the dead. The installation is comprised of a 3D model and a video installation as well as drawings, and photographs. My research centers on people and places across pre-war Eastern Europe with a specific focus on destroyed architectural structures and shtetl maps whose outlines, streets and central squares, may still be seen in the contemporary landscape.These images will be combined with text made up of my own writing and passages from accessible Yizkor (memorial) books. In addition to the static elements of the work, I will create a live cinema event where I perform image, sound and text sourced from the installation in an interactive projected environment.

Site: Yizkor includes the creation of its own participatory Yizkor book. During production of this work, I will collect memories of lost people and places from various contributors. The information assembled will be incorporated into the book as text, image, and hand-drawn maps. The Yizkor book will be available during exhibitions of the work and viewers are invited to add to its pages as a process of remembrance and mourning.
