My father is Chinese, but he was raised in the Philippines.  I have only visited a few times when I was young, and I don't have many memories of it.  This piece was a research piece that looked into the lives of the people living in Itogon, Philippines, as well as how their lives are changing due to global warming.  Native plants and crops are slowly dying off, and in recent years, Itogon experienced a huge destructive landslide.  This project began as a way for me to feel closer to my father but turned into the capturing of a community facing dangerous changes.
