WARSAME ISSE - DAYOOBID


How can a Diasporic individual reconcile their vision of their culture with the one shown to them by various sources? Using a soundscape of a conversation between my father and I and distorted Morse code, as well as microscopic footage of dried water droplets, Dayoobid attempts to visualize and answer that question. With no real concrete experiences or references of their own to base their image of their culture, many young Diasporic Somalis often have to rely on other people’s stories and media. This can leave someone feeling lost as they try to piece together their cultural Identity.
