A Warm Glow to Remember is a physical manifestation of Yumemi’s personal relationship to heritage and tradition. This body of work explores the invisible ties and the unraveling threads that anchor and contest her longing for the cultural past that is heavy, but is slipping away. This process brought Yumemi face to face with the burden and guilt of shedding a part of country and culture. Wherever she is, there is always a gap, a threshold, a barrier that slowly seeps into space. 

Engulfed in the flame of it all, she reached a kind of turning point, one at which this private conversation may emerge. Perhaps, being in this gap is okay. Letting things be as they are, is okay.

Although transformed, history remains present, perhaps you are the residue of the generations before you.
