Familiar Performance

Publication Series

Taking inspiration from Erving Goffman’s Dramaturgy, as well as my own field studies and design projects on culture; this series of publications examines identity through the lens of performance. Interviews with my immediate family reveal unique performances, through themes such as motherhood, work, travel, and imagination. Even reading becomes a performance, with the series split into acts, and bookmarks serving as intermissions.
