It Looks Nice from a Distance

It Looks Nice from a Distance takes the form of a two-part installation incorporating text, video, and sculpture. It explores the themes of nationalism, otherness, and displacement, and reflects on the complex relationships between archive and memory, reality and fiction.

Here I look into the long history of stigmatizing migrants as carriers of disease and investigate how the stereotypical assumptions that immigrants contract and spread diseases have complicated our narrative of immigration.
