Chúng Ta , Ochi
CHÚNG TA welcomes individuals who wish to share a story based on one printed image that is meaningful to them.
How does the printed photographic image sit in our heart and societies today?
In Vietnamese language the pronoun "chúng ta" means "we" and is used by the speaker or writer when they wish to include the listener or reader.
The process is recorded through photography and sound, at informal gatherings and through interviews. The resulting material is produced as a short video.
The idea behind Chúng Ta is to reflect on the relationship between photographs, memories and identities,proposing a pause in the visual saturation we live with.

In 2019, I create another iteration of CHÚNG TA as a radio programme, commissioned by Asia Art Activism.
