Grandpa, tell me your memories, 2015 - present

When I was a child, my grandfather, a native of Jatibonico, Cuba, and I began to answer the questions in Memories with Grandpa, an interactive book filled with questions to be posed from grandchild to grandfather. While we completed the first few pages of the book, the rest remained unfinished due to my grandfather's death when I was twelve. Through conversations with those who knew him best in both Cuba and the U.S., I answered the unanswered questions posed in the book we began long ago. I explore not only how memory can re-create an experience but also how it blurs the lines between fact and fiction.
