Frozen Food 1998

In 1998, I immigrated to the Netherlands and settled in Amsterdam. Upon arrival, I had no idea what life was like in the Netherlands, and consequently, most of my first-year experience was a strange mix of my need to create new ‘artworks’ and my attempt at habituating to life in Amsterdam. The immigration experience includes getting used to new routines, discovering new geography and routes, and learning the locals’ habits. For me, one way to assimilate was by exploring, using, and consuming local food.
