I want my work to present notions of cultural difference. As an international student I have experienced cultural difference and faced culture shock. This is the main problem that most people face when they go abroad for the first time. I went to America to complete
high school when I was fifteen and then I moved to Australia
for university. The first year overseas was really hard for me. I
was learning the language, completing school work and the most difficult aspect was getting used to a new culture. I want to use this memorable experience to make work that is meaningful in both the concept and the final work. To respond to my experience I have made a series of wearable pieces for the hand, each piece forces the hand to define a hand gesture that relates to the new culture I was exposed to. These are the gestures I had to understand and learn myself.
