    ​I started working on Two Million Steps in the spring of 2001 during my first visit to Vietnam since 1975. This on going body of work is a series of large color photographs documenting my site-specific performances in Vietnam as a ‘boat person.’ Two Million Steps is an investigation of cultural displacement within both contexts of immigration and emigration. The title itself refers to the physical distance between the shores of Vietnam and the United States, metaphorically it is the liminal space that exists between the two cultures.
