across the sea

this video was an interview I did with my Japanese grandmother asking her questions on how she felt coming to America the first time and how she felt in comparison to Japan and some of the barriers and downfalls it was to be a foreigner in a land where no one spoke your language and your customs were different then theirs.

other side

In life there are paths that we choose to take and explore. Some we take so often it becomes routine and normal that we do not even realize where we are or where we are going.

This video work questions these paths, in particular, the path of social norms of gender in society and how we are lead by our culture to abide by those norms.

The sidewalk is the straightened, heteronormatvie, path we think is "normal" to take but as the video advances you are presented with forms/lines on the sidewalk that are disjointed and become vaginal. This image, along with the sound, is presented to you to question this straightened, "normal" path and to, in turn, question the word "normal" itself. The layering presented express feminist theory that we are all equal and one in the same whether we realize it or not.

It's this realization of the inequalities that are presented to us on a daily basis that becomes prevalent in this work and to recognize that it's alright to break away from the repetitive nature of society and be different because, like the layers, we are equal and one.
