Pearlman’s work usually investigates the stories behind objects and their deeper meaning. 

In her new series TOTEM POLES she becomes the creator of the object. During the creation process she meditates on and commemorates the lives of lost loved ones. TOTEM POLES are expressions of “keeping someone’s memory alive” in a celebratory way.
