Unwritten, 2003 - 2010, comprises several projects built from book pages, salvaged documents, fading photographs, and personal anecdotes from my family's history. My aim for creating these works was to weave together the secrets of an incomplete narrative, and to offer a glimpse into a history my grandfather tried to suppress. The works were exhibited in "The Opposite of Forgetting" at Helen Gory Gallery in May 2009, as well as at The Jewish Museum of Australia, in 2010.
