Two Chinese Americans—we belong to two races or none at all. Lives of duality, the effort to belong as immigrants, as first-generation citizens, as the model minority—the project attempts to open a conversation on the notion of straddling two identities through anecdote, collection and dialogue. Chinese-American, Chinese and American, we attempt to challenge and celebrate the cultures that claim us as their own. Our daily choreography, the spaces inhabited and the objects used; the times of discomfort, confusion and self-reflection; the smallest details we once thought to be strange and foreign are shared and a significant part of our lives—this is an invitation into the private lives of two Chinese-Americans.
