The Great Migration is a poem about leaving, about the excitement of heading out into a great unknown. It's also a poem about expulsion, about diaspora, about being forced to from home, in some sense about my emigration to Canada. Yet it's also a poem about surrendering to the excitement and the compulsion, about the reluctant realization that perhaps fundamental change is needed to keep on living.
The exhibition version of The Great Migration is a diptych consisting of a 42" two-point touch surface + a 60" x 168" digital print text-image. The work was developed for the Words on an Empty Beach solo exhibition, presented as part of the Objet Indirect Object project.
