At Lazuli Residency in Corinth, Vermont, I became aware of how my body transitions into spaces. Vermont being culturally homogenized promised my body and mind a sense of no arrival, threat along with paradise and salvation. In trying to feel present, I researched stories and histories from the flora and fauna in Vermont. In this action, I sought common ground with my immigrant experience. I formed through rituals of knotting, braiding, wrapping and dying and collected through ethical sourcing. In my stay, my inner voice came out of me into the material and then joined the landscape.
