For descendants yet to come was inspired by a photograph taken on November 13, 1966 in San Ignacio, British Honduras (now Belize) that was altered through machine sewing and typed words, to become a handmade love letter. The installation honors our ancestors, acknowledges the current generation, and sends a beacon to our descendants yet to come.
