In the series Lost Psyche I wanted to talk about history, memory and psyche. The Immigrant, for example, portrays a nineteenth-century immigrant (played by my my daughter), but countless others have followed her, often bringing with them to their new country a world of harrowing memory and fragile hope.

The work is also a metaphor for the journey from childhood to adulthood.
