investigates the visual rhetoric involved in travel, migration, and immigration. Starting with a research-based process, Chun edits various passports and immigration documents from her own archives, as well as from her friends and family. The collected documents are recontextualized into landscapes, abstractions, and concrete poetry. Her works, devoid of their original bureaucratic function, individual and cultural specificity, become metaphors for our collective transit. By decoding the pre-existing iconographies and symbols of Homeland, On Paper
considers new translations of place and identity.
