Young & In Love: Karaoke Suite (multimedia installation)
Young and in Love is a multimedia installation that includes a karaoke room where groups can enter and sing along with six original karaoke videos. In the summer of 2003, I worked on an arts outreach project called "Our Voices," which introduced me to the the Vietnamese American youth of Fields Corner in Boston, MA. Their stories as well as my own experiences are the inspiration for this project. Installation, videos, and music by Nguyen Khoi Nguyen.The Fields Corner neighborhood of Dorchester, MA is home to the largest Vietnamese immigrant and refugee community in the Northeastern United States with over 9,000 Vietnamese Americans all living within a 1 mile radius.
Exhibited at Bard College, New York. 2004.
