My Mother’s Unseen Archive

A project aiming to visualise the verbal stories from my mother’s early childhood of living between Malawi and Goa. By using found imagery from books and the internet the project fills the gap in documentation of this period of my mother’s life while also showing how subjective our memories are to outsiders. The work concludes that although the recollections are shared between us, they can only truly be visualised and remembered for what they were through her only.
