    Even after someone’s departure, they still leave connections with the material world. “red lines” is a visualization of this connection between the material world that I exist in, with the spiritual realm that my grandmother has ascended to, via our blood relationship. The dirt, as well as the images of her bone relics, are a point of contemplation for the living to yearn the intangible presence of the departed, while the floating balloons attempts to send my wishes to my beloved grandmother up above.
