Through photography, mixed media sculptures, and site-specific installations, I investigate the way identity is constructed and reassembled during the process of socialization. I believe that no one is immune to the influences of their surrounding environments, from close social groups such as relatives, friends to intangible superstructures such as culture and ideologies. By using my experience as a starting point, I analyze the negotiation, interconnectedness, and the power dynamics that exist between the individual and society.
