And the fluorescent glow
of neon lights hummed to
say that we are here.

We are open.

In Search of a Better Life

2022, Gelatin sculpture installation
The installation shows six koi carps surrounding a white lotus flower. The koi, commonly seen in chinese restaurants, are a symbol of prosperity. Crafted entirely from agar agar and gelatin, some cut into partitions, the jellies invite childlike wonder and awe while they probe dominant imaginaries of a diasporic culture that manifests through its function to serve and to be consumed.
