Sensing Alienation

Qirou Yang & Sahar Askary Hemmat

Sensing Alienation explores how traditional buildings in Chinatown have been torn down and modern condos are taking over. Qirou and Sahar conducted video interviews with Chinatown workers that reveal their thoughts on the gentrification phenomenon in Chinatown and offered disposable cameras to Chinatown residents to document their thoughts in photographs.
