Abstract
Silent Scream is a series of works of art that explores the issue of immigrant identity. Living in America and learning a complex new language as a non-native speaker forms the basis of this thesis. The exhibition attempts to capture the emotions of a foreigner living in another country. The pieces are intended to convey imperfectness and the inability to completely emerge within another culture. To represent the foreigners' frustration and passion of overcoming difficulties in a new language the work also deals with obsessive labor of handling materials. Aesthetically the work draws on the idea of wabi-sabi in Zen Buddhism which constitutes beauty through imperfection. It also expresses simplicity, inherent to the concept of wabi-sabi.
