AAPI Zodiac: Fire Rabbit, Archival Print
This is the Fire Rabbit running into prairie fire. The year of fire lends resilience to the sensitive rabbit, who is known for standing up for their beliefs. Fire rabbits are smart enough to know the consequences of their actions, yet brave enough to go into the fire anyway.
The AAPI (Asian Pacific Islander American) Zodiac explores hybrid identities, inspired by conversations with my Taiwanese mother. In the Chinese Zodiac, there are 12 animals and 5 elements that shape individuals’ identities. I reimagined the Zodiac animals as if they were informed by diaspora and landscapes of Turtle Island / North America.
