My project involves inviting community members to critically engage in uncomfortable yet necessary dialogue about racial identity. My target audiences are young generation-marginalized, racial minority members, and diasporic groups, especially Asian but not limited to, in the west. To enable these conversations, I am outfitting an electioneering truck, inspired by those frequently seen during the Korean election season, as a platform to share narratives through voices of POC. Screens attached to the vehicle will broadcast a series of films called, Cascade Voices. While driving in public spaces, I will invite the public to share experiences of marginalization or to respond to the questions posed in the films. Potential topics for public discourse include being part of a minority group, generational and technological divides, or cultural denial in immigrant families.
