I'm here

Multimedia Installation

I’m here (2022) is a multimedia installation that explores the power of a mother’s love. The work offers perspective and support, through the act of giving a daughter the confidence to carry on despite the distance that separates them.

The viewer is situated in a dark room in which 22 paper lanterns are suspended from the ceiling. As the projection intimates a conversation between a mother and her daughter, the viewer witnesses the emotional healing process. One by one, the lanterns gradually lighten at the exact moment when the mother's love reaches her child, filling the dark room with a vision. It’s personal yet offered elements of relatable recalling memories, inviting the audience to explore their own feelings of nostalgia.
