A Home is a Portal is a collection of short illustrated stories documenting a quest for home across disparate geographies.
As the long shadow of ancestral displacement, colonization, and exile renders homecoming just beyond reach, the introspective pages of this experimental picture book in-the-making chronicle the call to realize a veritable vision of home.
Weaving together family lore, natural splendor, synchronicities with strangers, and cultural in-betweenness, A Home is a Portal drifts between memory, daydreams, and the mundane.
Told as the world spirals further into geopolitical and ecological decay, this story investigates whether the physical act of rooting is enough to conjure the metaphysical alchemy of heritage and home.
Developed during the Visual Communication MFA at Konstfack 2021—2023. This book is still in-progress.
