When two different entities come to interact with each other, a potency lies within the spaces that are in-between. The difference between these entities creates vital tensions and suspension of ambiguity. The dynamic interactions of the difference and potency of the space of “in-between” inspire me to create my work.
Exposing the space “in-between” reveals a deeper understanding about the complex, incomplete, and unsteady reality of human nature. Revealing these suspended spaces suggests that there is no such thing as fixed boundaries, extreme difference, hierarchy, or purity in race, ethnicity, or culture. Fluidity, dialogues, and exchanges are part of the nature of interaction. Translation and negotiation become necessary during their vital encounter. Hybridity is a sure path to transformation.
