Embedded and embroidered with seeds, each paper fragment is a poetic and abstract narrative responding to my imagination of life after death and hope of a new life. The week after my grandmother passed away, I worked intuitively, forming sheets of paper while listening to her classic songs, pulp painting my way through many unanswered questions. When all I had left of her was intangible, the act of making started a healing process through an experience that was tactile and physical.
