Holiday StoryUnfolding Places

Unfolding Places is part of a video trilogy that combines visual components of travels through vari- ous cities—by airplane, with the train, or by foot—with voice-overs in which the artist reflects on her out-of-placeness as someone constantly on the move. Incidental constellations in transitory re- alities and the desire for familiar structures in foreign lands find poetic expression in the recurring image of colorful origami objects blown through a puddle of water.
