Cracked Mobile

These works reference the traditional iron window grates that one finds in old colonial homes in Vietnam and SE Asia. Rather than depicting common geometric patterns, these mimic the common shattered glass cracks of mobile phones. Just as cell phones open their black mirrors into our mediated lives, these likewise operate as a portal into the reality that is mundane existence, a bleak view filled with concerns of surveillance and intrusion. Framed in wooden casings and loose gypsum panels, they behave as architectural remnants that hold a mirror to Vietnam’s eroding ways of life.
