To Majority Minority

Annu Palakunnathu Matthew

Saturday, March 14 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM

The America of yesterday, filled with immigrants of European descent is giving way to a new multi-colored America. By 2050 the populations we call "minorities" will become the majority. To understand these changes we need to reframe our understanding of this multi-colored American. I explore the generational transition from immigrant to native within families. To make the ephemeral photo-animations, I collaborate with 3 generations of women and build on their family photographs. I make it appear that the old and new images magically flow one into another, revealing the blurring spectrum of moving from immigrant to native and their histories.
