This book is a meditation on my relationship with my mom and her love for trees. Through its form I attempted to portray the series of layers that exist in memories and the meandering, organic nature of thought. This project is a contemplation of how values you inherently adopt as a part of your person are often tied to specific memories and how both objects and anecdotes can act as metaphors for more expansive life lessons. It is a collection of memories that I have with my mom and the myriad of things she’s taught me, a reflection on the many ways which she continues to shape who I’ve been and who I am becoming as a person.
