As a Jewish Torontonian and second-generation Canadian, I have an insider’s perspective with regard to focussing my lens on “the Other” and reflecting how shared collective memory gives rise to group identity. My own age provides perspective in portraying this story: I have one foot in the past with memories of how things were in the 20th century – the age of “analogue” prior to social media, am grounded in the present with fluency in current media practices, and I have one foot in the future seeing events through my children’s eyes and wondering how the world will change. As an artist, I use imagery paired with voice to create an analytical space and place for subjective engagement.
