My other blogs.

Hey followers who care, 

I’ve assigned this blog to only be an archive of my personal Instagram photos.  

To gain access to my actual blog that has some of my daily reflections, thoughts and ponderings, visit and follow BreatheThought instead, mostly based on my social justice rants, reblogs, whatever.

If you’re invested in social justice and in art produced by API artists and artists of color, follow my new blog, APIART.

My embroidery sculptures are on display at the Eating Cultures exhibition at SOMArts Cultural Center in San Francisco for the month.

Found this on Tumblr!  These embroidered pieces by jessicasorentang really say a lot about marketing cultural tradition.  The deformed shapes taken by the sculptures speak to how Asian American identity is produced through complicated perceptions of authenticity and objectified cultural symbols.  They also remind me of the book Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe in which there is a culture clash between traditional ethnic culture and colonialism.  As the shapes of these pieces are literally falling apart, their cultural value is reconsidered in an American context.
