The experience of immigration can be a traumatic one of upheaval, causing disconnection with one's family, surroundings, customs and habits. It is an experience relived many times in one's mind, as it often represents a turning point in an immigrant's life story. Through multi-media drawings, the proposed artwork would explore symbols of family (house, tree and roots), journey (airplane and boat), and freedom (ocean); expressing a sense of loss and renewal.
