“The more you are exposed to the international realm of understanding, the more you are exposed to liberal thinking. The idea isn’t that you get constrained, but that you get inspired.”

Wendy W. Fok, Issue 3


Dear 1Q Reader,

Day 3 is embracing the other and opening ones mind to liberal thinking as in — willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one's own; open to new ideas” in a global world. “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities” as per Stephen R. Covey.

Let's embrace people who are dissimilar to us and build bridges, not walls. That is the only way to growth, innovation and peace.

Wendy's Updates

FAR EAST FUSION: Fortune Cookie Series / Objet 3D printing

In this recent art project Wendy W. Fok (with Lillian He/Jung Ahn) looks into Asian American identity. 

The American Dream Fortune Cookies explores the objectification of Asian Americans in the Bay area. While also looking into the larger power dynamics often observed in orientalism, or the misrepresented concept of the “other”, of Asians in Western Culture. 

The tongue in cheek package design explores the Disneyland effect of Chinatowns in the United States, and the popularized nature of the fortune cookie that has consistently been misrepresented as an Asian import.

As an immigrant and citizen of the world, this semi-autobiographical project dives into the auspicious context of San Francisco and California as the homeland of the fortune cookie. 

The project acts as a commentary on the dualistic qualities of the Americanized immigrant experience and the popularized Asian American treat. 

The exact origin of fortune cookies is unclear, though various immigrant groups (mostly considered Japanese) in California claim to have popularized them in the early 20th century.
