The Book Of Perceptions

A collaborative project by Truong Tran & Chung Hoang Chuong.

The Book of Perceptions explores issues surrounding the hypehnated identity through the use of fragments in both the literary and visual arts. Combining the visions of two generations of Vietnamese Americans working in two different artistic mediums, the project attempts to further address the complexities of the immigrant identity, that of those at the crossing of two cultures.
