GRATITUDE (overview)

GRATITUDE (overview)

This work tells of 3 generations of my family, now gone except for me. It was created from a Portugese Bible found in a rain puddle and I transformed it into a sort of spiritual history of my family. It holds birth and marriage and death certificates; an early portrait of my parents before their wedding; our celebrations as a family of five. It captures pages from my mother’s diary at age 13; souvenirs from Mardi Gras; political buttons from the ’60’s; and more.
