“Frozen Moment” from “Sound of Butterfly”
Over the years, the artist photographed many of the special belongings her mother left behind. “Frozen Moment” is one of series from “Sound of Butterfly”, a reflection on her mother’s journey through life, depression, and death. She also photographed moments that reflect place and time of her mother’s presence. Ham placed these images in a 4”x4” box with water in a freezer. Each frozen picture was re-photographed on a lightbox. The series documents and preserves moments and objects that would have perished, or like memory, would have decayed and faded.
