There Is Something Between The TwoExploration of my identity in between cultures by defining negative spaces
This project is an exploration of being plural and partial in identity between two countries. It is inspired by a book, The Location of Culture written by Homi Bhabha. He says that “...these in-between spaces provide the terrain for elaborating on strategies of self that initiate new signs of identity, and innovative sites of collaboration, and contestation, in the act of defining the idea of society itself”. As a Korean who lives and works in the United States, I often feel I am straddling two cultures and at times falling between them. This project considers such undefined spaces by utilizing and emphasizing the negative spaces people usually don’t see.
