Home/Almost Home is an ongoing project on the relationship between houses, homes and me. Being an international student, my housing issues are complex: I have homes in China and America, but strangely I have no sense of belonging, and I am alone in both homes. Since last summer I started to take photos of those two houses. Some images are very homelike: messy bedroom, nighttime kitchen... Others are more disorienting, reflecting my own feelings. When I combine images from both houses into this one project, I am creating my own home space and seeking a sense of belonging.
Home/Almost Home is my real desire for a sweet home.
