i crave the self you are when i’m around

2015

i crave the self you are when i’m around was born from my need to document a 10-day first date that took place right before i uprooted my life and moved to the united states. through the use of text [as a post-it wall piece] and video-poems i aim to articulate the tension between the public and the private aspects of queer love; the feelings of falling in love and having to leave my lover at the same time; and the experience of emigrating and trying to find representations of my old memories in my new environment.
