About This Artwork: Believe it or not, there were Jews in Lapland. My great great grandmother comes from the Arctic Circle and descends from the Sami culture who were, and still are reindeer herders. It is in my DNA and DNA has memory not unlike our conscious memory.

Pretty weird and interesting, don't you think?
