My transcultural experience of living in three different countries, my mixed parentage, my mixed marriage and being part of the lives of my mixed-children. Navigating life through three regions of the globe has helped me to observe the perverse effects of social hierarchy, its product – the marginalized and the displaced. My work is about our inhumanity but also about our power to resist and affirm our humanity.

Points Words Threads includes two separate installations. It speaks of the victims of genocide globally, but makes special reference to the ethnic cleansing of the people of Darfur.
