This installation was part of "Day of the Dead" at SOMARTS, San Francisco 2013


This piece is inspired by the consciousness of our personal and collective memories. These memories happen during a certain period of time and may involve other people. They take place inside our minds, thoughts, imagination, hearts and bodies. These memories are not visible to the rest of the world, but they are there, inside of ourselves.

For a tree, the only way to count its years is through its rings. The rings can determine their age and show their good years and their difficult years. All of these tree experiences are not visible until the tree is cut down. Our memories are similar to these rings. They are not visible until we are able to share them.
