In this body of work titled "On Paper", I explore notions of identity, homeland and mobility. Drawing from my transcultural experience, I investigate bureaucratic travel identification documents to examine the ways in which our identities are validated across borders. I recontextualize various passports’ watermarks into large-scale landscapes by employing methods of appropriation, scanning, and digital manipulation. I transform bureaucratic information to construct metaphors of our collective transit and identity.
