Completed for Martie Holmer's Foundations Design course, I was asked to create a map with a political message. This tapestry is designed to map the route of my family and I's immigration from Albania and the memories and emotions that are tied to each place we've lived in. I used traditional means of Albanian crafting, such as embroidery, to design this tapestry as a way of reflecting on my culture and learning more about art making in Albania.
