Site-specific installtion: writing on surfaces of exhibition space and digital prints (12 by 18)
Dimensions variable

Observing the space, I write secret narratives on beautiful and interesting, yet unnoticeable and silent surfaces of the architecture. Then, I photograph the writings on di?erent spots and print them to display in this gallery where my secret writings are.

The secrets mainly came from my experiences as a nail technician and a kitchen worker in the US. Along with the undocumented secrets among immigrant workers, I also focus on legalized economic exploitations as explicit secrets in the country. Both the actual writings and the pictures of them are displayed at random, creating a non-linear narrative.
