  • "There are many memories of childhood that have slipped through the cracks. Those I do remember are of my struggles dealing with the difference in myself compared to the peoples around me. At two months of age I was taken from my biological family and given to a foster family; to this day I am unsure of the circumstances surrounding my removal. This action has left an abundance of questions that remain unanswered. I have since made some contact with my biological family, however their struggle with identity leaves little room for answers in my search. The identities I have chosen are a mixture created by trial and error, with the guidance of the dominant society's uncompromising vision, infecting every breath. I am a chameleon taking on roles and behaviours in their appropriate settings. Not having a solid cultural ideal to work from, I am forced to create a visual history that combines many ideals. Running, running, trees going by."
