White questions - Yellow answers
This project is about racism, especially towards Asian women. As one of them, I have been feeling uncomfortable in white-dominant society because of the way how Asian women are sexually objectified.
While working on this project, one white male asked me :
Why are you offended by being attractive?
These faces are answers to this question. When you're a minority, you have to explain why this question is wrong with the smile on your face because often, people don't understand what you're saying and suddenly you're the one who is unreasonable and sensitive. I used a forging technician to express my frustration towards the discrimination that people are not even aware of.
