Gela 2 (Excerpt): Stop-action animation mixed materilas, on a single canvas, 2'

In this piece I am exploring the idea of Pluralism through autobiography.
As a person who moved between geographies (Ethiopia, U.S.A.) time and place are no longer singular for me. I am in a continuous dialogue negotiating “Here” and “There”.

These fragmentations are reconciled through the storytelling aspects of my work, as means to connects multiple realities. For me, an imaginative relationship is necessary to adapt to a new environment, to embrace the here and now, and to connect with the ephemeral in the everyday. While collaging my past with present experiences, I attempt to make a third entity that is in both the past and the present in which places and time are continuously shifting.
