Reverberate is an installation of objects that suggest a room. The room is created from materials that I relate to childhood memories and are handled in ways that explore the feelings activated by these memories. To convey how memories surface repeatedly over time, I stuff, rip, squeeze, press, dip, fold, and hang these materials until they change, revealing something new. I refer to this process and this work as a tremor: a reverberation of an initial event felt throughout a lifetime in the physical, emotional, and mental space of the body, in a family, and in a community. Memories move and weave into one another. The installation in its entirety is a tremor as each object represents a different memory, frozen still for contemplation.
