Origins reflects the history of where I have come from. By using DNA analysis, my paternal and maternal lineage was traced back 20,000 years. This provided great insight and a far-reaching historical look at where I came from. Each lineage varies, coming from multiple contents and cultures. Through this altered flag book structure, the journey that my ancestors took is graphically represented. The journeys begin in very different places but end up in the place that I was born and that I call home.
