Original collage study and exploration of thoughts on identity and immigration through my grandfather’s feelings upon arriving in America from Manila in the late 1970’s, what I think he felt and what he left behind.
Made as one continuous fold out card using wax, masking tape, gouache, Japanese papers & xeroxes.
Original zine study about a car ride in Manila, and the first time traveling with both of my grandparents and my parents back to the Philippines. At that point, my mother had not been back in 30 years.
Handcut paper collage, scotch tape, Olivetti typewriter on vintage receipt paper.
