I’m attracted to stories and characters presented in literature and media and use these examples as a litmus test to examine my own identity and the identity of those who occupy my environment. I apply the metaphors carried in these personas to my own dislocation and curiosities. The Chinese cowboy in American folklore, for example, has a comical and tragic irony that I enjoy.
