Entangled Archives, an installation of 36 lightboxes framed in wood salvaged from abandoned homes after the Hurricane Karina. Exposed electrical cords that gather in a pile of surge protectors power modest illumination of the collective mess of photographic memory; enshrined within the worn, molded frames lies a collage of images and documents, pinhole photographs of facades of abandoned homes, census records, letters and archival images represent five generations of my family - images create a broken narrative of memories and documentary proof of existence. The falling cords suggest the form of a family tree, entangled in a tumultuous mess on the floor, like pulled roots revealed by receding gulf waters.
