    2008, 9:24

    These visuals and sound are from a site-specific piece. I installed this in a garden that had been forgotten and unused for quite some time. The video was projected onto the water and the speakers were hidden in the plants and trees. The figures in the piece seemed to be emerging but then would disappear before you could touch or fully see them. They are the inhabitants of that forgotten place (now the place is gone). To me this piece is very much about memory and identity because these are the images and sounds that came to me when I would visit the garden.
