transcribed interviews

Japanglish is a sculpture that is constructed using an interview with a peer of mine Leika Kitamura who is Japanese-American. At the time of the interview she was in the process of learning Japanese. “Japanglish” is a part of a series of sculptures called "Between Words." I held interviews with people who were a part of multiple cultures. I found that I was most interested in how knowing or not knowing the language of their parents effected their relationship to their culture.
