In Other Words
Lately, I have been making work to unpack the overlapping identities I have felt my whole life, and to find my place on a number of spectrums. Learning from others who are on the same journey has become an integral part of my process. In Other Words explores how it feels to exist between clean-cut binary social categories, according to our local gender non-conforming citizens.
With the hope of deconstructing the division between traditional and contemporary identities, I ask the viewer to participate in a neighbor-to-neighbor experience, and to hear the stories of local citizens whose self-definition is often disregarded. This is an invitation to get to know your neighbors. Sit. Listen. Stay a while.
