Eating My Data, 2022


A speculative short film investigating the intersection between DNA data storage and Chinese immigrant food narratives. It is a meditation on technology’s ambitious role in encoding personal data inside DNA and follows the process of storing the artist’s own family immigration story within the genetic makeup of rice.

The project presents a what-if scenario, asking viewers to think critically about the role of technology in producing foods, preserving culture, and representing diasporic identities.
