"Repetition makes practice makes perfect”
<div><br></div>I am creating my fantasy self, I'm trying to get back to my Real. <div>I'm Othering myself. </div><div>I am witnessing myself. </div><div>I is ego. <div>Identity is political. </div><div>My hair is political. </div><div>Look at all of the perspectives. Repetition makes practice makes perfect. </div><div>Watch my pixelations and passivity. </div><div>I'm bougie. </div><div>I'm poor. </div></div><div>I'm passing time. </div><div>You're passing time. </div>
As a Cambodian American woman, I use diasporic identity in my work to convey layers of being and relationships. I am soul searching, most likely through you.
Through installation and delegated interaction, I am projecting my identity on you and gauging your reaction. Weaving personal tales and interaction, I delegate the audience in conversation and action.
Taking the form of social constructs and objectivity, I am critiquing communication and the politics of identity. To me, Live Action is the ability to fabricate situations of childhood trauma and adult responsibility while seeking alternative perspectives and possibilities. I seek intersectional meaning and memory in others by Other-ing.
