Napoleon's Retreat from Moscow

five tote bags hanging on a white wall, gradually from left to right becoming more visibly distressed. in the middle of the bag, a pink circle that gradually mutates and turns red
five shirts each with three phrases screen printed on in blue, yellow and red. From right to left the phrases gradually spread out across the shirt

An installation emulating the endless loop I experienced travelling my whole life between divorced parents homes. This journey is illustrated on a plain tote, similar to the one I would pack for my trips. The destruction of the bags and the maps illustrated on them represent the fatigue I experience after 18 years of travelling. Accompanying each tote is a shirt, each have three different colored phrases screenprinted on them. Each shirt is the same cotton t shirt, to mimic the monotony of packing your life in a bag. Each print is a statement about my age, my understanding of the world, and my stance on home.
