Project Description

Through film photography, video, and sound installation, “Hiraeth” visually represents feelings of romanticized nostalgia as they can manifest themselves through an unrelenting bond with one's homeland. It explores the dichotomy between identity and nationality and the hold these have on the other, by focusing on the artists Welsh heritage and how she navigates life as an international, first-generation college student.
