Atlast: Finding Your Roots

As part of completing my BFA, were prompted to formulate a thesis about a passion or interest. Due to my diasporic background and ongoing self-discovery, I chose to center my thesis on ethnic identity and lost heritage. My outcome was an heirloom kit which included a genealogy chart (available in print and online), a book with guidance on Hybridity (the idea that identity is an accumulation of all present cultural influences), a flowchart for best practices when researching one’s own ethnic identity, custom cards with culturally applicable proverbs to keep as reminders on this journey, and a handcrafted custom birchwood box that also acts as a frame to display the Genealogy chart in ones home.
