This entire project serves as a way for me to heal parts of my childhood that felt shame and isolation. I grew up avoiding conversations about family and my background because it felt like a burden I had to explain. Sifting through the confusion of my audience trying to relate my existence to something familiar to them. This cross between cultures and not feeling too much a part of either has made its way throughout all aspects of my life. A jumble of things and ideas, nothing concrete. These pieces are the manifestation of me taking pride in the differences and its combination being unique to just me.
This project includes ballpoint pen drawings and heat transferred images on clothing, a printed zine with collections of photographs and illustrations, and a website that holds all these items.
