Ethnically Ambiguous Asian

Digital Video
2013

Ethnically Ambiguous Asian is a video narrative about my cultural identity. In the video, I explore subject matter regarding my familial experiences growing up, specifically focusing on Mandarin language acquisition, or the lack thereof. I am playing with the idea of performing a constructed identity, whether it was one I created or one that was foisted upon me. This further permits me to explore the roles that I embody and how I am able to fluidly move between them.
