Hello! My name is Jin! I am a NJ-based artist with research-based social practice. An example of my community-based work, WERE HERE JC, where I install historical markers about unacknowledged people's history, can be seen here

With the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Coastal Management Program (CMP), and selected by the Perkins Center for the Arts and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (Arts Council), I am working on a project about the effects of climate change in Burlington County, NJ. Titled Rancocas Project, my focus is the areas of Rancocas Creek to hear stories of everyday people affected by flooding in recent years. 

A part oral history project, a part research project, and a part children's theater for all ages, the Rancocas Project seeks to include stories from our neighbors with diverse backgrounds and experiences. The vision is to follow in the footsteps of those who have advocated for historical reckoning, social justice, and climate justice. 

Read why it is important to address the issue now here.

We are collecting stories for art. If you share your writing, recording, or pictures with us, they can be used in an artwork, a Crankie performance, at the Perkins Center for the Arts in October 2024 (and possibly in other iterations in the future). 

(Curious about how it might work? Check out Jin's process here.)

SHARE YOUR STORY TODAY! (Deadline is July 31, 2024.)
- Submit your story here or send your questions here

PLEASE KEEP YOUR INBOXES AND EYES OPEN FOR ANY UPDATES FROM US.

If you submit your story, we might reach out. We are so grateful for your generous participation. And we hope to have you at the performance. Please let us know if you would like to attend.

You can find Perkins Center for the Arts & me (Constructed Ephemera) on Instagram and follow our progress.

THANK YOU!

Thank you for sharing your stories with us.

Without your stories, the project would be incomplete. The performance will hold no images or sound. There will be no art. 

You are the inspiration and the primary source of this work!
