My studio work is a reaction to displacement. I have been dragged through a progression of finding a home. I have been dragging these heavy rugs with me everywhere I go.  Most of the rugs I use were made in the USA, not dissimilar to me. Nashville Kurds donated most of these rugs to me... I imagine they settled for these fake rugs because it was the closest thing they could get to the real ones... Diasporic life kind of all feels that way… always creating alternative homes for yourself, settling yet always nomadic.
