This is a video dedicated to my grandpa whom I visited back in February and stayed with until the end of May. I made this video with the intention of depicting the lesser-spoken side of what it really means to have immigrated to a foreign land as a child.

To be raised with the American Dream is to be presented with the Immigrant Daydream—an everyday craving to return to the Motherland and reconnect with Her spirit through family, nature, and the familiar. 16 years of living in an Adoptive Land has made Nature the ultimate source of metaphors for the lifestyle I pertain to as an immigrant.

Ajax is an illustration concept that displays various skin tones. This work of art was inspired by the artist Alex Katz, each individual student had to incorporate their own artwork with an artist they researched on. I decided to take on a different perspective and utilized my style with Alex Katz's style in a illustration form. The name Ajax comes from greek mythology, they said he was hero during this time. This is a modern day version of Ajax with a few twist and turns.

Fustercluck includes various uses of digital medias, such as pictures, videos, and "GIFS" that work to tell stories through the electronic medium. It functions as a Cosmogram- which is an exploratory concept from Gregory Ulmer that includes a collection of memories, places, images, and ideas that are put together and results in a realization of the artist. These components result in the invention of a work that imprints a human story in electronic space.

Fustercluck is largely a personal work that both reveals and conceals my thoughts, ideas, and reflection. Cosmogram was a new concept to me, and through experiment and invention, I was able to create a work for others to explore. More importantly, Fustercluck serves as an artistic, personal, and digital story that will stay in electronic space. In this digital age, people explore new ways to tell stories and document them, and that was the end goal that I worked towards in creating the website.
