is a photographic mixed-media installation by HCC grad and Michigan artist Ginger Owen-Murakami, who says of the exhibit's inspiration that "the origin of a unique human experience is comprised of the immediate family, inherited DNA, indiviudal, communal and domestic histories. These networks of family structure create shared, human experiences. The work is a quasi-autobiographical story defined by lifes cycle and a search for that which makes us human."
What that translates to in the physical world is "Kite Piece," an installation of forty ceiling-hung kites with images acquired from personal, family heirloom photo albums, representing a communal conversation on the influence of family history. (Pictured: Ginger Owen-Murakami's "History Dress") On display May 18-June 10. HCC Ybor Art Gallery, Tampa.
