Americana: Portraits with Flags
       
     
  Americana-  Film Stills    My work addresses issues of citizenship, immigration, and identity.The videos and film stills from the Americana series describe a tumultuous relationship with the American Flag. The stills come from “Soft, Soft American Flag” “Eating the American Flag” and “Sexy, Sexy American Flag” and are part of a larger body of work that includes 10 short videos intended to be viewed running all at the same time on LCD screens. In this work, I use myself as an object and the Flag as a subject to explore the symbiotic relationship relation that exists between the immigrant to this land. This work reveals the relevance and consequence of melding and hybridizing in the American culture
