The research aims to reframe the construction process of the researcher’s diasporic identity in a more conceptual approach through an auto-ethnographic performative lens. The use of conceptual elements, instead of direct descriptive retelling of the lived experience and the construction process, will hopefully provoke more critical analysis among the audience. Therefore, the media output of this research will not use a documentary or live-action format, and instead will use animation to allow for more extensive use of the conceptual elements.
