Hyphenated American
2018
[06/07]
Concept/Development by: Ashley Jo, Maricruz Meza, Carina M. Huynh, Maribel Barcena, and Lulubi Garcia.

The process of this project started with the discussion of bicultural identity, the state of being oneself regarding the combination of two cultures. This discussion created a conversation between us, and raised some question: How do you become completely American? Is America the platform to embrace who we are? How do we become part of White Culture? How do you maintain your heritage while rejecting its cultural base? Is being a certain descent—Latino, Korean, or German— a matter of race, ethnicity or both? There is no perfect answer to how we answer this, and there might be no words for us to describe what is like to be a Hyphenated. Hyphenated America is an exploration of ethnic identity and our cultural duality, or lacking one. Adapting to a new culture while holding onto our roots.
