I am currently preparing to return to the Philippines (in March 2009) with an Filipino arts collective to create an installation about Manila, the Philippine capital, here in Toronto, Canada. 

As a lead up to that trip I will show some older work from the Phils in this project.

I was born in the Philippines, but having been arrived in Canada when I was two my memories of youth are all Canadian memories.  I went back for the first time in 2001, I was twenty-six.  What I saw was foreign and yet familiar, what I felt was foreign with a yearning for it to be familiar.

Everytime I return, I can't help but but wonder what could have been, what I would have been, had my family not migrated to Canada...
