The Levitating Perils delves into a history of Eurocentric representation of Asia as a threat to the “West.” The project discloses and interrogates a racial incarnation - a “vicious” octopus that consistently appears in western documents. Using a playful aesthetic strategy, the project deconstructs the imposed racial signifier and pounds on the question of “Peril to whom.”

*This project is supported by Denver Digerati as a commissioned public projecton installation for Supernova Digital Animation Festival's Night Lights Denver program, Denver, CO, 2021
