Kit of Parts
We ask questions to get to know each other better but sometimes we end up saying things unintentionally. When asking the question, “Where are you from?”, is there some sort of microaggression and stereotyping that can affect the person? This project, Kit of Parts, reflects on how we can ask the question while being aware of where people originate from.
The idea of creating a Kit of Parts is where you can take different items and “create” a person. When choosing the items it creates a “convulsion.” This is an homage to the surrealist’s exquisite corpse. My project aims to start a conversation on how we ask these types of questions and what exactly makes a person who they are.
