From the Director:
I first heard the airport story from Michelle when she shared it over a group zoom call. It was before the Bay Area announced “shelter-in-place”, before any of us knew how bad this pandemic would hit us, and before the rise of anti-asian racism across the country.

Michelle is an Asian American pharmacist. She shared how it’s a weird tension to be an Asian American while working in health care in these current times. There’s a difference in treatment when she has her white coat on versus when it’s off.

I was moved by her story - by how she responded to the discrimination with first, self-contemplation, and then the spirit of love and forgiveness. There was no hate nor fear.

I wanted to make an art piece with that spirit to document her story. It’s not a jab against racism and the fear of this virus, but a gentle reminder that we’re all humans, it’s okay to be scared and we still can be good to each other.
