Pieces of Me is about our smaller identities. The little pieces of ourselves that make us each a unique. Each of the printed photographs is embossed with secret messages that tell little pieces of my story. For the exhibition Who Am I/ Who I Am I invited the audience to take home pieces of me.
I couldn't think so I decided to go out and find myself. I was surprised at how personal it became. I embossed the images I made on my searches with secret messages that tell little pieces of my story.
Pieces of Me was conceived and developed during Who Am I/ Who I Am, cycle 7 of Forward Flux Productions’ collaborate create 21 day residency program in Seattle, April 2017. The 20 artists of Who Am I/ Who I am examined the concept of Identity and created art in response/ reaction.

I think they can see their own faces under the ice.
My heart is tattered but it is there.
My shadow is stalking your shadow.
I like to keep a veil between the world and me.
I break my life into little pieces.
Sometimes I feel like I am under attack.
When I talk I feel like my skin is being torn off.
My eyes have cracks.
Sometimes the shadows are stronger.
I will always find the sunspot.
My grandparents house was white-painted brick.
My dreams are my own.
I have doubted the existence of god since my First Communion.
The past is fading.
I like to peek through dirty windows.
The ornate gives me peace.
Chinese food is my true love.
The nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.
I am not the only broken one.
If I look you in the eye you will know too much.
The gateway to my adventures.
When I start to breathe again.
I used to be so brave.
I will follow you anywhere.
I want to be on that side.
You don't know I don't follow your rules.
My spirit animal.
I used to be sort of a bad girl.
I will always stare into the sun.
Perfection frightens me.
Sometimes it is best to be alone.
I am the girl in the tree.
I think this all day every day.
I am a time traveller.
I can see ghosts.
I pretend I am in a 1960s sci-fi movie.
I have learned when to give up.
