 This project conveys the distance physical, emotional and cultural in between a grandmother, her daughter, and her adult granddaughter now living aboard. The twinned experiences of, on the one hand, the luxury of freedom of speech and, on the other, the inevitability of homesickness, are the contradictory fates of the departure from home. But where is home, and what defines it? Familiar melody, smell, or family?
