Inda Ahmad Zahri and Anne Ryan
Like a turtle, Salih carries his home on his back. He must cross a raging sea in search of a safe home. Salih paints his happiest memories and sends them as messages in bottles. Will someone find them and understand? Will Salih find a new home?
Many others carry what remains of their homes. We have left entire worlds behind, fleeing with our memories.
