As we were losing my grandmother to Alzheimer’s, I began exploring the idea of my family as a way to make sense of things. In my large Italian family, "family" is central. I ended up with four pieces:
- La Famiglia which represents the family's foundation or root system,
- Far Parte Della Famiglia which represents the family's growth and livelihood,
- Nesso which represents generations passing with memories fading and traditions lost, and
- La Condizione which represents completely faded memories.
