Tr ansl ation less explores the conflicts of language and memory within my personal life. I wake up and I see myself in my grandmother. I forget things that I shouldn’t. The way she struggles with a different language is the way I struggle with my thoughts. My grandmother navigates in a place that doesn’t understand her language. She can’t share the few memories she still has. I navigate in a place that makes me feel unwelcome and alone. Tr ansl ation less documents the feelings shared in my family–– the fear of not understanding or being understood, the fear of forgetting what we knew when we were young.
