Enna Kim

Essay by Lucy Fang

“HANBOK/한복 explores the intergenerational and cultural gap existent within immigrant parents and their children through textiles and dance. With my mother’s sewing machine, I carefully fabricated a hanbok (한복) ,a Korean traditional costume, to represent the pieces of my constructed and hyphenated identity. I use this digital space to create a speculative narrative animation between me and my parents, participating in a reciprocal exchange that extends beyond language. As the animation is projected onto my garment, my body becomes an essential part of merging my digital and physical identities, piercing through and with time and space.”
