Interactive: you are invited to Kippis (cheers) or Kirota (curse) your ancestors and they can cheers or curse you in return. In a respectful way I ask, what did my ancestors invite me to do? How have they challenged me? What have they asked me to create?

I am investigating the texture and the feel of both the present and the past; aunt Lillian’s Vintage mink fur coat c.1930, Models, Brownie Hawkeye, Olympus OM-1 cameras, Iflord HP-5, Fuji and Tri-X films
