My publication explores issues surrounding the mixed-race experience, in particular the alienating nature of being multiracial. Western media expresses a hyper-positive obsession with mixed race individuals, featuring them as symbols of a wishful post-racial future, heavily fetishising and sexualising the mixed race image.My project encompasses the aspect of healing, and creating futuristic “hero like” personas and narratives, to tackle issues to do with alienation, such as sexualisation and glorification, linking it to my Egyptian and Peruvian heritage.
My portfolio explores the feeling of alienation I experienced growing up , within and outside of my family.Each narrative delves into the multifaceted cultural differences, which stemmed from growing up immersed in two non-European cultures, as well as being brought up with conservative Christian values.
