"Ride the Wave - Monologue" is a dynamic paper-based artwork that incorporates the artist's personal drawings, choreography, and performance, as well as collaboration with musicians Randy & Mei. The piece reflects the artist's integral inspiration on water, which carries her understanding of self-awareness and exploration of new things and uncertainties. This work embodies the artist's consistent focus on the immigration and identity, continuing her wave imagery and musical performance to create a seemingly static yet dynamic, sorrowful yet joyful video experience.
