Prompt: For this project, we were challenged to create a collage representing the past and future of one of our sources of inspiration.
My piece explores the past and future of musical artist, Ginger Root (Cameron Lew). Lew is someone who inspires me because of his interdisciplinary work in video art, music art, and graphic design, as well as his continuous exploration of his Asian roots. I’ve noticed that in his more recent work, he integrated more Asian visuals– visuals that make Asian-Americans like myself feel seen. In this piece, I imagine his work evolving to be more in tune with himself and his cultural heritage. I also imagine that he will be able to use both his past and future learnings in his art.
