“Migration”, a site-specific installation of concrete life-cast leaves, by Elizabeth White

“In view of the current economic disasters, political conditions, military actions & climate or earth changes I see immigration as the new normal.  What may be them today is us tomorrow.” — Elizabeth White

Many people spend a lifetime without ever having to consider the need to emigrate from their homeland.  Many others spend their lives learning what it means to always be an immigrant, never feeling quite at home.  And then there are others, never quite at home regardless of where they are.  When I saw the “Migration” installation by today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Elizabeth White, I marveled at the simple symbolism of leaves separated from their roots.  It is precisely how many of us feel, like leaves strewn about, seemingly at random.  Disconnected.
