A room of one's own

A room of one's own

Taking inspiration from Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own (1929) where she explores the effects of poverty and marginalization on the achievement of women, this project mainly focuses on an exploration of the private spaces of East Asian women. In particular, I am interested in the ways that private space defined by East Asian women reflects and helps to develop an interior life which can be in tension with their unique and subtle external cultural environment. These private spaces which are outside of the official gaze of the dominant culture, with its own values and expectations, allow for moments of authenticity to emerge which I am interested in capturing and expressing. I have taken influence from the dreams and fantasies of my research and interviews to heighten the drama of the images produced.
