Subspecies Synergia re-imagines memories of the city I once called home, interprets the experience of soul searching as a young immigrant, and the adjustment and acceptance to the conditions of a new life, in a new setting.
As with most children and teens that migrate, the decision to become an expatriate from the homeland is often done by the parents. Uprooted from it, this work deals with a story of interrupted childhood dreams, unprecedented life events, coming-of-age and revival into womanhood in a new home-setting. It is a story of life, migration, love, hope and trust.
