Project Title: On Becoming: A Mediation
Proposal Summary: Experimental and personal visual research and exploration as a relatively direct response to the radical mix of cultural, political, technological, and economic changes within the uncertain worlds within which I move myself in. I try to look at how money reconciles the various forces of history, culture, economics and the self, and how we use it as a mediation to navigate these various meanings.
