From West to East
Out of Date
During the 1st month of jumping into the United States, I strongly felt an absence of belongingness. Also, as a young person, I had been feeling lost. I associated myself with homelessness, pushing a shopping cart and wandering at midnight. I used a shopping cart and a traditional Chinese red belly cover costume (红肚兜, designed for a newborn baby) as a metaphor to represent home and goal searching. At 3:30 midnight I played the game with the shopping cart to demonstrate the fragments of my life here. It was such a torturous process. To make these unfocused images, I intentionally turned on a flashlight. This was another way to show a distance and disconnectedness.
