“I am fascinated by the boundaries between spaces that delineate “in” and “out,” especially after a year of field research in Korea, whose culture has specific borders, thresholds, and customs for each person in its society. I am especially interested in the private experiences of people in social strata that are usually disregarded or rendered invisible. My work looks at how people express these experiences and how private stories can be projected onto the outside world.”
