  • Mirage Raft (the Dream Talking Oyster) seeks an empathy between the oyster and the queer body that are both present and absent in the diaspora memory.
    Through an acoustic device, I transferred the texture of the oyster shell into sounds that became scores for the body movements to achieve a bodily resonance, where my body and the oyster became interdependent.
    Through this work, I want to explore how the eastern Asian diasporic movements can nurture a kinship beyond the conventional narratives to be with the land, the water, and the Earthly ecology.
