the art work that I liked was “1001 Migrations” by Mona Saeed Kamal. her origins come from India, raised in Canada and now living in New York. She conveys a story of migration , religion, nationalism, and cultures through her artwork. Her artwork consist of video, installations , and multimedia. The message she conveys in this artwork is definitely migration   by the title and also by giving us the number count of the paper boats. Another thing that is shown is that every boat is a different color and I felt with the colors she conveyed different ethnicities with each boat. The boats look like some are going the same direction while others aren’t , so she conveys a sense of direction ; to wherever the boats are migration to. what informs her creative vision is her background as ethnicity plus places shes been to besides her hometown and birth place. Also the stores of other people.
