THE WAIT_____
BLANC MAGAZINE

Inspired by Atelier Aveus’s furniture collection emoting visual codes for waiting, this fashion series follows a young woman displaced in a surreal waiting room in the midst of travel. Here, the wait is a metaphor for an “introspective” state‭, revealing ‬tension that occurs between patience and impatience‭, ‬calm and frenzy‭. ‬​​​​​​​

Shot for Blanc Magazine's SS19 Freedom Issue
In this room‭ she is alone and begins to feel the mania of “contemplation‭, ‬passivity and the distortion of time‭.” ‬By highlighting an absence of freedom or its imminent arrival, the Wait beckons you to question: Is she awaiting her own departure or the arrival of someone else? Is she trapped here or is she present by choice? ​​​​​​​
These images comprise a visual ode to my feelings of alienation and isolation as a Chinese American woman, and the shame of my own passivity in face of systemic oppression in America.
