Opaque Love

A 16mm looping installation
glow-in-the-dark powder, UV flashlight, and a half-visible letter with a family photo book.

︎watch excerpt

An indistinct self-portrait entwined with an unsendable confession letter; Opaque Love delves into the contradictory and fragmented sense of belonging that arises from my queer identity within the divergent political, and cultural contexts of China and the United States. It uncovers the imbalanced relationship between my identity and the surrounding environment.

*May 2023, Group show in Automata, LA.
