Learn My Name. participatory installation

plywood, video, monitor. Oct 2022

The two-channel video installation of “Learn My Name” (2022) is designed for the audience to sit on either side of the installation and watch the other side of the video installation. The audience can see a screen of either me teaching others how to pronounce my Korean name or Americans struggling to learn how to pronounce my name. I intend for the audience to experience a flipped power structure as well as the seemingly small struggles and countermeasures that those in the Asian diaspora must face to fight against an identity crisis.
