Part of the ‘Passages’ collection, which explores the contrasts and overlaps of tangible and visceral experiences and memories I gathered after spending time living in two culturally rich and equally contrasting parts of the world: the Middle East and the Caribbean. This series merges the landscapes of the tropics and desert, patterns of Islamic tile, and stories of each place and time, layering and overlapping. Tengai  天外 translates to "horizon, beyond the heavens, farthest regions" in Japanese. I lived in Amman, Jordan from 2008-2009 and this calls to memory the Red Sea, shared by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Sudan, Yemen, and Eritrea. The tile design represents not only the sea life for which the Red Sea is known for, but also the rich and diverse cultural influences of the places that share the sea.
