Abstract [en]

A Home Is a Portal is a collection of illustrated short stories documenting a quest for home across disparate geographies. Part illustrated book, part physical installation, the project visualizes how inherited memory and ancestral loss of homeland can transcend space and time and investigates what a path to healing might look like. Weaving together family lore, natural splendor, synchronicities with strangers, and cultural in-betweenness, the project's introspective illustrations make tangible a lifelong struggle to set down roots. Drifting between memory, daydreams, and the mundane, the work asks: Will rooting in a physical place ever be enough to conjure the feeling of home?
