Infertile American Dream is a triptych of C-prints, which was created by exposing the light-sensitive paper with the sunlight of the day Trump won the presidential election.
As I watch him talk about the increase of nuclear armament and the indication of even using an A-bomb on a group he holds prejudice against, it harks back to the terror of my grandfather’s experience of Hiroshima in 1945. The haunting realization that dawned upon me about my grandfather that he not only lost his physical home that he grew up in, but also his family that dwelled inside of it too.
The increasing threat of nuclear disaster, as my grandfather experienced, can easily alter and take away the idea of home. Other people like me who seek a home and hope in America, are always afraid of being denied and they will not be able to have a chance to conceive their American Dream, just like the unassembled home in the photograph.
