“I think the heart of this work lies in the search for identity. I don’t live in the US anymore and I have now spent more than half of my life in Europe, so you start to ask yourself questions about identity, family history, belonging and trying to preserve your own history a bit. I can’t say I am influenced by the place where I grew up, it doesn’t exist anymore. I can’t go back there. If anything I am influenced by a memory of the place. I am interested in seeing how it became not only my story but a perfect example of globalization and progress running out of control.”
