There are fragments, being natural or cultural, relational or personal, historical and temporal. I tried to capture these fragments and differences between locations and cultures. The negotiation between these dual parts of culture allowed me to suture my experiences together, just as I sutured the elements of my objects together.

Drawn from cross joint construction of cultural structures, I created those natural forms to emphasize both my understanding of relationship of nature and culture. By comparing the differences between locations and cultures, I think of myself as being in a “limen” situation.
