The Rebirth installation is a symbol of hope, the use of the flower signifies renewal. Whatever form of oppression a society, culture, individual or nationality is experiencing they can survive and strive. Memory is an important aspect to this installation because the memory of the past and traditions are important to the concept of society, culture, individualism, nationality and religion. This work was inspired in part by my own cultural identity and World War Two.
