DOMESTICATION juxtaposes the concept of indoor and outdoor, as well as the concept of domestication of humans and plants. This work is made as a response to the COVID-19 stay-at-home order and the contemplation on land use, home gardening, urban lifestyle and the environment.
During quarantine, I started to take walks around the neighborhood of Glendale. I collected seeds and cuttings fallen on the ground and grew them in my apartment. I didn’t have a piece of land to grow plants at the apartment I rented in LA, so all of my plants lived in pots—a confined space just like me living in an apartment. This is the background for the making of “Domestication”.
