Fighting the Loneliness (of Social Displacement)


In various barren and urban landscapes, I dressed up in custom-made costumes to fit together scenes that mimic fictional film setups. Between the cheesy staging and costumes constructed solely of sauce-packets, the photographs are made to look as gaudy as possible, questioning “What looks more fake: the questionably staged scene, or a person of Asian descent in the costume of an American Hero?”
