""Paths of Memory," from the series "Shifting Perception," highlights the importance of memory in creating a positive future. The viewer must touch the work to complete the piece. When only a small detail appears, memory must be used to recreate the image in its entirety. Beneath the drafting film is the view from my Prescott room at Hampshire, looking towards the Yurt, Lemelson, and the Arts Barn. It is drawn with continuous, circular lines of ballpoint pen to give life to the memory. The slowly fading ink adds to the message that the experience continues as long as memory lasts. Memory defies loss. "Paths of Memory," has been featured on Artists Network, Huffington Post, Arte Fuse, and Nippon TV."
