Culture Tablets, 2017
Glass, Water, Plaster
Culture Tablets negotiates the diaspora of being a part of two cultures and backgrounds. Immigrants are always forced to acclimate to the culture of the country that they have immigrated in, therefore, in order to fit in, there must be sacrifices made to their own original culture. Suddenly one discovers that regardless of what culture they are trying to become that day, they are not enough for either option. Culture tablets imagines the possibility of creating "culture pills" that could increase your tuning with a specific culture based on the monetary pill that you swallow each morning. While the pills imply that they might dissolve in the water, they only end up sinking and eventually useless, thus failing in allowing you to become more of what you need to be.
