Asian American ? Project
2007
Business cards with text that respond to comments and questions that strangers ask Asian Americans. Every week since age 12, I am asked one to ten of the same questions. Since these questions and comments are common to other Asian Americans as well, I created a set of business cards to flash or hand out for the appropriate moments. Through the interaction of questions and answers, lasting racial stereotypes and myths of the concept of the “Asian American” are revealed.

MEDIUM AND SIZE: Print media on paper. 36 Cards. 3 ½” x 2” [8.9 x 5.1cm]
