Citizenship Project Performance | Installation
a three-channel HD video with sound, office table,
chair, serigraphs, plastic, and dye-sublimation prints
Citizenship Project is multi-media installation, expanding my interest to screen prints and graphic design alongside with my primary approaches: photography, video, performance, and installation art. The project is built upon my fascination of pass/fail measurements applied in the American system. Who will pass the oral interview and who will fail it? The US-born citizens or the immigrants? Does remembering answers for 100 questions earn you US citizen status? Does speaking English qualify one to gain full membership in America?
This performance-installation includes 2 mock-up USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) officers. Participants are invited to have their photographs taken and take civics tests to "gain" pass/fail citizenship status.
