Breaking foot on bread


2019
Book (b/w photocopy, staple bound)
16 pages, postcard

A collection of short monologues about a Filipino living in the Philippines for the first time. The book is composed of accounts and reflections that I encountered during my 16-month residency, highlighting several challenges Filipinos raised outside of the Philippines may experience during reconnection. Additionally, these experiences aren't unique to the Philippines, with the same issues being present within the diaspora.
