MAT ’10 Art Education

Making maps is one of the things I do as an artist. As a child of immigration, the act of traversing physical and mental spaces is built into the basic processing of my life. Re-imagining those spaces is an act of healing, and being an artist provides me the luxury to engage in this act. As I make the world “mine,” I am afforded the opportunity to travel back to my childhood, and to plot various paths through my imagination back to myself.
