BACKGAMMON BOARD

Considering mixed ethnicity through the backgammon board. Considering similar journeys of running from inhospitable conditions: genocide on one side, the Dust Bowl on the other. Considering how those events shaped a generation of survival and coping, creating a sense of understanding between an Assyrian boy and an Irish girl. Claiming the Lamassu as a metaphor for my hybridity.
