"We share our histories so that we might each learn from them for a future of peace, truth, and tolerance. I created a public sculpture called “Migrations” as a way to honor a painful chapter in history, while hoping that new generations will be able to move beyond the long shadow of Genocide. Through the process of making the piece, I grappled with ways to talk about our ancestors journey with my children, in a new way. Telling them that we are here, now, today - as products of our ancestors struggle and as a living testimony of their will to survive."
