“I am rushing through” is a ceramic piece dedicated to the memories I have of my family. It is illustrating my parents and my grandfather while showing the damage that has been brought to these memories by the war as the swelling. This piece is describing my experience of being far away from home during the war, while I am not being able to protect my family or be close to them. It is showing my inability to think about the past, in order to stay functional in the present moment, it’s describing my tendency of rushing through every thought and memory of the past, in order not to get stuck into a dark place full of surreal nostalgia, where I am surrounded by feelings of guilt, emptiness, sorrow, anger, loneliness, and helplessness.
