Abstract

From personal anecdotes and past experiences, “Blissful (Dis)comfort” confronts, celebrates, and humorizes my Thai culture and family dynamics through light, sound, and the subversion of everyday objects. This thesis explores the personal, intimate, and even vulnerable sides of my childhood and personal relationships, as well as their reflections on technical challenges and solutions to everyday electronic devices. The body of work rejects the expectations of cause and effect, logical consequences, and reactions, blending in the child-like sense of wonder, discovery, and play with more complex themes of nostalgia and family.
