SORRY I NO UNDERSTAND is a work using text to reflect the migratory experience, and the humanity of social justice. Neon light was chosen as a medium as it is an everyday object. This line has been said thousands of times whenever there are immigrants in this world—but wonder how often it has been heard nor understood.

Sorry I don’t understand this country

Sorry I don’t understand the culture

Sorry I don’t understand the language

Sorry I don’t understand the people

Sorry I don’t have a choice

Sorry I have to escape

Sorry I need to live

Sorry I need to survive

Sorry please listen to me instead of yelling

Sorry please be patient with me instead of annoying

Sorry please give me a smile instead of angry

Sorry please share some empathy instead of pity
