This sculptural work considers photography's role in the creation of family narratives. Hanging from the ceiling in a giant net are the contents of family photo albums, owned by the parents of the artist and her husband before they were born. Thousands of hand-framed images bury each other, emphasizing the impossibility of understanding one's history, and posing questions about photography's role in what is remembered and forgotten.
