Revisiting my most important influences on how I have become the person I am today has been a priceless experience. This family migration study has enlightened me to the value I should have been placing on the guidance, patiences, and commitment my grandmothers and parents have given me over the years. I see now, after considerable exploration, that I have neglected to offer praise for these wonderful things and will no longer do so.
I set up a tea party installation, inviting my parents and both of my grandmothers in honor of their efforts invested in me. I have done my best with what I have to show each of these people how much I care for and respect them.

Mapping & Place: Before taking this class I hadn't considered Google Earth an art making tool or the derive an art form. I learned that I had not spent nearly enough time seeing and hearing my world around me.
Video became my art making tool of choice during this online studio. I spent many late nights of endless fun and excessive perfectionism putting still images, video clips, audio clips, and transition / animation combinations together to make just the right statement.
