Vivisection: An Autobiography of an Asian-American Cyborg

For my final project, I wrote nine poems and collated them into a visual collage on my website. With these poems, I focused on examining Asia-America as a solitary body, and then sought to tell the story of that body through the poetics of dramatic monologue. I then turned the poems into hyperlink poems, attaching hyperlinks to key words in the poems. The intent with these hyperlinks was not to explain the poems, but rather, to add layers of meaning and approach the storytelling of the poems in expanded ways. By integrating the digital into the poetic, I sought to articulate how the modern Asian-American body is one of the cyborg: a body that is constructed as much in the womb as it is in the cyberspace of television, internet, and the white imagination.
