"Detskihome": a combination of language and experiences. This constructed word derives from the Russian word "Detskiy Dom" ," детский дом", and it's English translation "Childern's Home" . Together this word combines my history to my present. Being brought over to the states from Pavlodar, Kazakhstan, like most adopted childern, I have found a disconnect with my culture and place of birth. This body of work, featuring videos, sound, and writings is my open diary, as I reflect and attempt to recconect with my roots.
