This piece was created as a response to the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership), its secretive manner of negotiations, and its exclusion of Pacific islands. I investigate the operations of globalization through power and control dynamics between space, people, and objects.

A turbulent portal, shaking our senses, challenging routine, this piece brought together museum pieces and spectators by embodying black and white photos and censored bodies.
