“Richmond is the new Chinatown”

Tracy
Tsui

Focusing on youth participation in the preservation of Vancouver’s Chinatown. Exploring the preferences of Chinese-Canadian youth in relation to traditional practices versus western culture.


Model 1:
I want to create a contrast and show the transitions from traditional to modernity. Focusing on the larger idea of identity boundaries and how the attraction of Western culture influences latter Chinese-Canadian generations.


Model 2:
Showing the historic signs of Chinatown, symbolizes how popular it previously was. Currently, there are hardly any signs left up which represents the "dying" of tradition and history.



Pallete:
I was inspired by minimalism and felt that with only a few colours, the strength of images and text would be more prominent. A palette of red, white, and dark blue was a focus in this exhibit.
