My mother died suddenly when I was 9 years old. When she died my chubby cheeks and saucer eyes only hinted at a familial resemblance.
Now late into my twenties, I have grown into her features.
I am told I speak like her. I am told my gestures mimic hers.
I am told for a moment I can bring her back to life.
Viewers are encouraged to interact with the piece. Use the transparencies to overlay images.
Find the moments they are together. Find the moments they are their own.
