I'm interested in the political boundaries and hierarchies of national mobility. As a "third culture kid" my work is informed by my lived experience of displacement and belonging. My multi-disciplinary practice incorporates stills, sound and moving image to visually deconstruct the layers of identity through a documentary, portrait and architectural lens. My final major project with the working title 'Access Denied' reveals the permissions and impacts of global border entry and exit. It explores the morality and limits of border crossing within a system of ranked passport categorisation and visa dependency. As an artist, it is fundamental for myself to position dialogue and exchange at the center of my practice. Within a contemporary and socio-political context, my work seeks to expand and contribute to the discourse of multi-cultural experiences within social systems.
