Amanda Kachadoorian: Botanical Hybridity of San Diego's Multicultural History

“To be placed in a new environment is a way to understand the internal and external aspects of life. I express the notions of identity, culture, ephemerality, and nature in my work. Every concept has an underlying relationship with one another which is a constant process and investigation. Through the experimentation of mixing various plant life representative of individuals and/or locations multi-cultural background, I aim to create the notion of hybridity from a post-colonial identity. While creating an atmosphere of identity through nature, I use a personal motif, “heart in a bowl” which symbolizes the effects of displacement, isolation, and anxiety. In conclusion, I create a dynamic atmosphere while providing dialogue surrounding perspectives of individuals and our society.”
