We leave our mark on places, but I believe they also leave marks on us. This series explores that idea – how these places shape us, how we remember meaningful places, and how our memories of such places change over time. Scraps of wallpaper and maps, images of houses, and the fading silhouettes of past residents symbolize domesticity and explore memory.
