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.

In this swift hell, firefighters wore upwards of seventy-five pounds of gear, as they walked atop a landscape rendered to burning coal. Guided only by headlights, the firefighters would soak the path in front of them. Every step released a fine silt of red embers and ash that moved weightlessly through the air, accompanied with […]

This project is a reflection of the gestures we perform on a routine basis in order to interact (as the trigger and the data input) with networked devices such as smartphones and laptops. These gestures are abstracted/flattened in the design process and transformed into online behaviors. This habit-formation process only takes us a few attempts […]
