Site: Yizkor, is an interdisciplinary installation that reveals lost and forgotten spaces left by the dead. My research centers on pre-war Eastern Europe with a focus on destroyed architectural structures and shtetl maps whose outlines may still be seen in the contemporary landscape. The installation, when completed, will include an artist book, drawings and a video installation with a musical score created by composer Andrew Conklin. In addition to the installation, I will create a live cinema event where I perform image, sound and text in an interactive projected environment.

Site: Yizkor includes the creation of a participatory Yizkor (memorial) book.During production of this work, I will collect written memories of the dead and lost from various contributors. The information assembled will be incorporated into the book and combined with my own writing and with images and text from historical Yizkor books. The Yizkor book will be available to audiences and viewers and they are invited to add to its pages as a process of commemoration and mourning.
