Abstract: Skyscraper foundations are as embedded in the earth as Appalachian heritage is rooted in my existence. I am drawn to the city, but feel grounded in the mountains. These truths seem mutually exclusive, but perhaps they can coexist when experienced through the proper medium. A two-hundred-year-old farm, family tragedy, and big city dreams converge into a contradictory reality. However dissonant to present melodies, Appalachia will remain a constant harmony to my future narrative. These works question the stability of identity and recognize the fluidity of what it means to be home.
