APA Zodiac: Metal Rooster, 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 Metal Rooster. Confident, charismatic, industrious, and a bit of a showboat. The Metal Rooster bears the colors and features of copper, feldspar, and quartz, precious metals and minerals that are mined in the US. These materials are integral to daily, modern life, from the copper in our electrical wiring and plumbing to the quartz and feldspar needed in the making of glass and ceramics.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, who you become is determined by the intersection of the animals and elements that represent your birth year, month, and hour.
September is the Month of the Metal Rooster. People born in 1981 and 1921 (after the lunar new year) are Metal Roosters. The Hours of Rooster are 17:00 to 19:00.
