THEWWW is a space for personal exploration. The namesake THEWWW comes from the latter portion of my first name MATTHEW while it is typically read as “THE WWW” which is known as the worldwide web, the channel or medium which I am able to research and remember the things I may have forgotten, as well as connect with new and old friends no matter where their location.
The project currently places emphasis on the Asian American experience. Parts of my childhood were filled with both joy and sorrow. The joy comes from movies where I identified with the characters that shared the same features I have, where the sorrow is being one of the few Asians in the town I was raised in, I did face racism both passively and aggressively. These projects are to inspire those that identify with this, a sense of joy and pride where for the unfamiliar a learning opportunity for something that was meaningful to me.
