Abstract: I started the MFA Program thinking a lot about my experiences in America. As a newcomer from Serbia, I have been pondering about the changes that I went through while being here. My cultural, social, and psychological foundations have been shifted ever since I came to America. This has lead me to reflect on my former life back in Serbia through the lenses of memory of people, places, and relationships. This act was what kept me in touch with my roots. My work trajectory revolves around my life adaptation to a new habitat. Through material such as wax and brick, my intent is in ringing together what is fragile, delicate, and ephemeral, with that, which is strong, durable, and unbreakable.
