Rootless is an installation of a forest with rootless burnt paper trees suspended from the ceiling, swaying, never the same landscape. The viewer walks into a transparent vellum paper and ink drawing that participates with introduced movement and air.

The trees are the ghosts of lost homes and the war ravaged forest is the setting of a journey made by the adventurer, the immigrant, the refugee, the lost like me. We are each fighting a battle, as individuals and as a collective people. Sometimes a tree marks the way, but the ever changing scenery spins and the bomb and sharp twigs point as if to take aim. Our histories we preserve in ink run.
