Connecting the dots is a narrative mapping small objects that I have collected from Astoria, NYC. As I explored the city, sometimes I discovered things I was familiar with in China. Those things brought me a sense of home. In the meantime, as a stranger here, I am always drawn to things that I am not familiar with. The images, sounds and smells I have explored and collected in this city enriched my experiences and memories. They are like reference points building up in my minds, which can be evoked at any moment and related to other memories I have experienced here.
