It was mostly my fascination with technology that inspired me to do this photo shoot. Even though interacting with everyday devices can seem banal, it’s also beautiful. Throughout all of my photo work, I make a point of illustrating my personal style, which I call "diaspora looks" — it's a mixture between East and the West, inspired by the aesthetics of diaspora communities living in the Western world. Technology plays an interesting part in that, and helps represent cross-cultural identity as pan-national, which makes this series look like it could have been shot anywhere — in South Asia, or the Middle East, or even Brooklyn.
