Conversations with Ora: Defining Home features the work of artist Wyndi DeSouza (MFA-VA16).
Artist’s statement: Conversations with Ora: Defining Home is part of an ongoing series where I collaborate with my grandmother to capture images of home, family, and her daily routine. Using postal mail, I send letters and disposable cameras that include rules for taking pictures or a correspondence with a question. During the height of the pandemic I asked my grandmother to write me a letter defining what home means. Presented is the letter sent to me, a data portrait of my grandmother, and images that explore her ‘earthly home’ as seen by her and myself.“
