EDGE OF COLLAPSE
Typography, Photography, Videography
Edge of Collapse is an exploration of identity and the transition of identification with a new society. It considers issues related to identity, belonging, memory, remembering and forgetting. This expressive typography video demonstrates how identity and memory are constantly shifting and becoming. Ever since I moved to Canada, I have seen myself as a multi-ethnic person. I live in-between two cultures, not there or here. Through my own experience of cultural shift I reflect on how memory and identity can create a sense of loss over time. By using various processes of combining images, typography, sound and video I have aimed to produce a work that visually represents my self-exile experience and unfold the answer to “who am I?”.
By using photography and writing from my own journal, I have created a narrative that depicts my chaotic experience and the tension between cultures and languages. These typographical experiments emphasize the idea of exile and show how the connections between two identities can be so ambiguous.
