Between You and I investigates how our perception of the world is coloured by the cultural conditions in which we are situated. As a child, Ellen YG Son remembers making glasses with red and blue cellophane. The world she saw through these lenses was tinted and glitched across a spectrum of red, purple and blue. Years later, moving to different countries and meeting people from diverse cultural backgrounds, she realised that her vision was limited to, and coloured by traditional Korean values and language.
Through globalisation and increased connectivity, we are exposed to other cultures. These alternative perspectives impact our own, scratching the surface of our tinted lenses creating openings. Through these openings, we eventually unravel, blend and transform our own identities.
