The Orphan Train is on a figure 8 rail track, with intersecting double loops making reference to the orphan /adoptee’s dual history. The scenery presents a dreamscape architecture informed by childhood fantasies of a secret and parallel life. This assemblage is made up of disparate and reclaimed materials. There is a play on the use found objects with a fragmented or unknown past, to reflect the foundling or adoptee’s own blurry knowledge of her/his genealogical history.
