The passion I have in building creative resilient immigrant communities that are effectively addressing social issues at a grassroots level fuels the dense research I am undertaking. As a result, I have come to view my works as performative containers. Performative in the sense that my cultural memories and explorations of urban liminal spaces are intentionally replayed nonstop through the process of research, creation and public sharing, and containers because they hold and frame personal narratives in constant flux.
