Things That Confuse Us is a microsite exploring “Korean-American” identity via a visual diary. This project was built over an 8-week period as my classmate Sahm and I attempted to become not just designers but writers and developers. We experimented with writing original content (personal reflections) and coding as we developed the site from scratch.
The site features images and reflection writings from past experiences, structured as responses to questions Sahm and I have heard growing up that push us closer to or farther away from our cultural identity. With overlapping, disorienting popups the site immerses the user in a state of confusion to illustrate our ongoing journey with our identity and being okay with existing in an in-between space.
