This support paper explores my growing interest in different forms of existence, being, identity formation and specifically diaspora. Through research creation, the field of art and design invariably involves a study of the interplay between a researcher and their artistic work in process. In this writing, the methodologies focus on exploring diaspora, immigration, Canada and ‘the migrants’ time’ in the twenty-first century in terms of understanding political and cultural realities of migration. For Marsha Meskimmon and Robin Cohen, migration is the biggest concern in an era of globalization characterized by the rapid pace of modernization. Four different installation art projects are discussed in this support paper: DESigual: (Ad)dressing identity, Becoming Words: on Process, Becoming Words: “I am going to die in this country as an immigrant.”, and “In a new land…Be longing”. Through these projects, I have explored the practice of installation art, text-based art, and the underlying content of porcelain. I have undertaken a material exploration porcelain paper clay and a conceptual exploration of its use as a medium to emphasize what I refer to as embodied materiality. I aim to visualize the experience of replacement and displacement through representational and non-representational sculptures by making art objects, searching a new material: such as porcelain and using text.
