Happy Headroom

“Happy Headroom” was part of my mid-residency show titled “Living Threads” in February 2020. The immersive installation consisted of 4-channel video and sculptures. In this video, my mom and I perform rituals as a visceral process to create a dialogue between changing states of self and site. Hair, simultaneously dead and living, functions as a tapestry of histories, biologies, and traditions, a weaving of nonlinear temporalities. The (un)raveling is a transference and exchange of memories, pain, and love, and transforms into a shared, intergenerational heirloom. Family becomes the representational vehicle that allows me to explore roles of tradition, family dynamics, emotional intimacy, and in a broader lens, a discussion of race, class, and migration.
