In the age of new media, Ann Shin’s second book of poems, The Family China is turned into an artistic transmedia project with the smashing of china and tchotchke you’ve had around the house for too long.
Ann Shin’s second book of poems, The Family China explores how household objects and china become emblematic and domestic life. Together with director Marc Glassman, they are turning the book into a stunning artistic multimedia project with broken china – where people are invited to bring a piece of family china and share a story about it, or smash it.
You’re also invited to bring a piece of pottery or tchotchke that you’d like to share a story about, or smash. We’ll be filming anyone who would like to contribute to the growing video compendium. Facebook Event page
