Globalization has seemingly brought the world closer together and has resulted in a heightened sense of the familiar. This feeling of familiarity provides a bridge through which I access and magnify my perception of a world derived from personal experience. Even so, perception, like memory, is a false construct and is colored by the subjectivity of nostalgia as well as by socio-political forces informing our reading of world-view. In my work, the fictive nature of a space that is both idealized and conditioned by our society reflects skepticism and multiplicity as I obscure the distinction between the past and the present, and stereotypes and the real.
