5/5: anybody home?


lamps and baow baow, a love letter to the (un)dead, born.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ a trip to the beauty supply store.  straightening up and straightening out

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ death. finger waves, in her presence, in his absence


Join me + 5/5 for anybody home? this Saturday, June 16, 5pm to 8pm at CTRL+SHFT Collective.

Commencement Exhibition


i installed another iteration of this piece for the commencement show and i think it's the most satisfying version yet. my parents came for graduation and were able to see my studio and other works in progress up close for the first time. my mom and i had a nice talk about the audio in the video piece which features a conversation (over breakfast) between myself, my parents, aunts and younger cousin; truly a special moment for me. 

MFA Thesis Show x 5/5 InStall views

5/5 showed up to thesis! I had the pleasure of showing my work alongside my 5/5 family, Troy Chew and Nkiru Oparah at Minnesota Street Project. A perfect capstone to our MFA experience.
