this series was inspired by a dual identity created from old and new canons, expanding on my investigation and interest in storytelling, cultural exchange, and connection.

Reminders Self Portraits, 2020

 

At the height of the pandemic, Asian Americans experienced a record spike in recorded hate crimes. I became hyper aware of my race at this time and created this series in quarantine as an attempt to satirize and reclaim the ways perception has influenced how I see and interact with my body, gender, and appearance.

 

Each image is paired with a conversation I've had with a stranger between the ages of 13 and 23.
