We exist where we begin is part of a larger body of work looking at the intergenerational effect of memory and myth-making.
The series, 'What is in a Body?' is a multimodal film project incorporating archival, film footage, text and hand-drawn animations which details the complicated and nuanced ways in which transcultural and diasporic experiences are carried within one’s body. We Exist Where We Begin, is a procedural test in the act of becoming—it is an exercise in learning, processing and reviewing the aspect of grief as an occasional companion to memory.
