i am home even when i’m not describes my routine move between Taipei and Vancouver for education and my discomfort with not having a settled resting place. This pivot between two places is described in the poem as two places such as inside/outside, here/there, and sunset/sunrise…. it is reflected in the instinctively collaged video that hints as binaries such as sky/ground, wall/ceiling, indoors/outdoors. The footage of me walking through a flooded road curiously and gently disrupts my reflection on such binary spaces – this flooded road is man-made and natural, unintentional and intentional, a disruption and a soothing touch… Perhaps I am at rest, or at home, even when I’m away, even when I don’t notice.
