In your own words, what is your ethnic identity? (for individuals)
Your Artistic Background/Mission
Environment: I explore and examine the physical environment and environmental issues, as well as my childhood environment of American popular culture. These projects take the form of works on paper and installation art.
Experience: I create works to combine my thoughts into a form that shares my experiences and views with others. My telling is of being an Asian American woman in this time frame, and how the influences of the past and questions of the future affect how I live. Some personal experience has been in the form of artist books and solo performance.
Ephemeral: My work investigates the forces that are the basis of our everyday world. I am interested in patterns and natural phenomena in the cosmic order, like growth and decay: things that are in the movement of evolving from or devolving toward nothingness. Or things that are temporary. These projects are in the forms of small sculpture, works on paper, and artist books.
