Mediation is an abstract video piece that attempts to convey some of my cultural negotiations. I am engaged by places where borders and divisions exist in culture and I choose to investigate from the interstices. In this video, I am using abstracted symbols that are overlaid with a surface of camouflage. Camouflage, for me, takes on two distinct meanings: 1) as a sign of aggression & 2) as a sign for protection. Upon this ground of camouflage, I am applying signs that refer to “Home” & “Nationality”, in hopes, that it evokes a reflective response within the viewer. The Audio is created from sounds that I collected from around my home.
