The Armenian Genocide in 1915 forever changed Armenian history and the landscape of migration in the twentieth century. 104 years later issues of displacement and trauma still bind Armenians from all over the world through a thread of collective memory and the eternal quest for identity and belonging. Scattered is an installation that explores Armenian symbolism to tell a narrative of journey and diversity whilst portraying the universal struggle of acknowledging the past.
