Using stacks of old media players, framed carpet-matted photos, shoes, and other personal objects, artist Michael Chang creates memory containers in each display case, encasing a set of his possessions used to construct his sense of heritage and home. As a second-generation Taiwanese-American, Michael’s parent’s immigration journey from Taiwan to Southern California shaped his relationship with what home is. For him, home exists as fragments of multiple places in space-time. Each of these different geographic locations makes up a part of his home.
