Hardly Un-American is an openly subjective archive of Asian diasporic culture. It documents my process as I research Asian diasporic (with a focus on Asian American and Indian American) histories, projects and visual communication in order to develop a personal design aesthetic that relies on assertion, rather than appropriation or assimilation.
This site includes:
A digital library of resources that inform my understanding of my Asian American identity.
- An archive of diasporic and rooted Asian artists around the world.
Note: This archive is not meant to be comprehensive; rather, it documents artists whose work reinforces or deepens my relationship to Asian American-ness and/or inspires my own visual communication.
For a more personal reflection on the motivation and imperative behind creating this project - and to understand the title "Hardly Un-American" - please read my thoughts * * * here. * * *
