MOVE WITH US asks Queens immigrant residents to demonstrate physical stances in public spaces for an animated video to illustrate the collective cultural gestures in Queens. It's about cultural assimilation, community, immigrants and empowerment using movement, gestures, photography and video.

I have teamed up with the talented photographer (and bhangra dancer), Fumi Nakamura, to take MOVE WITH US to public spaces in Queens this summer to photograph immigrants living in Queens demonstrating a favorite, personal pose that represents their home that they left behind. Living in the most diverse borough in the nation, the goal is to collect 167 poses!

I have received a grant that has partially funded this brand new, experimental work, and am looking for contributions to make MOVE WITH US happen! Funding is going towards the luggage tag souvenirs participants receive after being photographed, designing and printing the backdrop, language translation, and on-site interpreters for the photo shoots.

MANY THANKS to the individual donors and local organizations for their in-kind donations before even launching this campaign! The excitement and support has been overwhelming and the project is currently 75% funded! Please help with the final 25%!!

About Roshani: I am a visual artist working in sculpture, installation, and public art and recently started studying and teaching Indian dance. This project came about through that creative evolution and from the experience of being a child of immigrants and navigating through different terrains in the south and NYC.
