Braiding Water (work in-progress)
supported by Theater Mitu Hybrid Arts Lab 2023
Braiding Water is a tender conversation with grief, and an imagination for a mourning ritual that has been lost, or forced to be kept absent.
Tracing the experiences of loss and being silenced among 4 generations in my family, this project reflects on the parallel between silencing the living voice and forbidding a memorial for the dead, and how the growing mass surveillance interests with this parallel.
Tapping into the playfulness of technology, Braiding Water plays with the unreliability of memories, individual and historical narratives, and attempts to digitize the otherworldly presence
