The Collapsed Space
‘The Collapsed Space’ is an open-ended and multidisciplinary research-creation piece exploring the complexities of diasporic identity through investigating my own personal lived experiences of being a Chinese Canadian American. Through virtual reality (VR) development as research-creation, this arts-based research uses auto-ethnographic practices to document generational narratives and personal memories into a VR experience.
