Benjamin #2 uses fabrics to tell the narrative of an adoptee, addressing the formation of identity.
Drawing on my personal struggles in defining myself, Benjamin #2 communicates the precarious balance between our external safety net (perhaps: family, friends, community) while the internal mess and struggle of piecing together our identity continues after an experience of displacement.
