"Thinking about wanting to be white in 2008 in 2013; part 1"
7 minute video performance piece.
As a teenager who unknowingly wanted to be white, I was never satisfied with the physical attributes I possessed which highlighted my otherness. It was for this reason that I had my hair thermally reconditioned, multiple times, as a teenager. This process would reduce my naturally voluminous, wavy, thick Filipino hair to being bone-straight for months at a time. Not only was this process expensive and time consuming, but it stripped my hair of its natural texture. In this piece, I reenact this ritual by straightening my hair; a time consuming process in itself, which now, at age 21, often leaves me feeling as if I’m being untrue to myself.
