This is me

experimental

Growing up was hard, even more so as I struggled with my identity. I never felt like I truly belonged to either of my identities: Korean or American. I was too Asian to be American, and I was too white-washed to be considered Korean. This project is a representation of myself. Of my two sides.

Designed using two bird motifs reflecting my two backgrounds. With the help of an arduino and some gears. The birds meet at the center to touch a box, lighting up with the inscription 'This is Me'.
