Filmed in Hamilton in spring 2016, The Walk Home is a two-channel performance-for-video. The Walk Home and ensuing sister-works in the series, Finding words for the feeling, shape an artistic methodology for navigating one’s presence on familiar and unfamiliar land as a settler-immigrant using organic site-specific and site-responsive actions. The object, when taken from one place to another, leaves a temporary trace behind. At the same time, the environment leaves its trace on her. As the seemingly hard, white exterior slowly wears down through constant movement, she is drastically altered or expended beyond recognition.
