The Carrying Voice

Panoramic photo of a sepia-toned garden. In the right corner a woman tends to plants with a one story home in the background.

The Pacific Rim is the land around the edge of the Pacific Ocean. I come from that edge: I am half Filipino, and half white. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA on one side of the Pacific Ocean, I am obsessed with connecting to that other side of it—back to my Motherland, the Philippines.

Instance Terrain Spread

Three dimensional modeled grey and white objects with rainbow striped overlays.

Written as a kind of trip-report with a posthuman sensibility, Instance Terrain Spread describes experiences that would be incomprehensible in conventional spatial reality, but are easily understood when experienced in a virtual space.

Featured image for Suzanne Kite - Three Diffractions of LA

I talk to my cousin Corey Stover on the phone and he teaches me hokšíkilowaŋpi (to sing a lullaby); we are both cruelly out of tune. He is in Oglala Nation, I am in LA, and we perform our distance. He sings to me and I to him, a short melody. I watch LAPD helicopters out the window of 242 East Avenue 41 and compose a short drone.

Close up of white mineral rock.

In the fall of 2020, I began gathering samples for what I’ve termed an Anthropogenic Mineral Collection. These carbon-based minerals consist of human-mediated byproducts of geological intervention from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The majority of those in my collection are caused by industrial mining of valuable conductors, and have not been recorded elsewhere as natural occurrences.

Ghosts and Flowers

A 2D image of a black and white ghost holding a flower stands in front a toilet and a red leather sofa. A mirror reflects an image of a child in the middle of the room. Below the image is a caption explaining the context of the image.

I kept considering what happens when liminal space becomes static—how we are all stuck in this transition with the expectation of a return of normalcy, but in actuality there is no neutral, there is no normal. Normal is a veneer in which a few have the privilege of living under.

Colonialism is rooted in the planetary imagination which fails to account for histories of structural racism based on geologic relations and the violent dispossession of indigenous lands. This resulted in legacies of destructive cartography and mapping now used in machine vision in space.
