APA Zodiac: Fire Snake, Limited Edition Print
The APA Zodiac is a celebration of hybrid identities. There are 12 animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac and 5 elements that shape who we are. Each astrological animal is mapped with elements of landscapes of the Americas, paying homage to the intricacies of heritage and who we are.
Inspired by stories and conversations with my Taiwanese mother about our family's history, our immigration, our struggles with colonization and assimilation, and our future.
This is the Fire Snake + the American Wildfire.
One of the most iconic New World snakes, the boa constrictor spans across the southern part of North America, Central America, and South America. It can live in the high tropics as well as the desert. Here, the boa is intertwined with its burning habitat. The wildfire is at once a necessary, integral part of nature, and one of the most devastating results of climate change. The more humanity speeds up, the more powerful and deadly the fires become.
