Culture Coalescence

Pop culture is used as a platform to examine cross-cultural relationships

Implications - China's growing global influence has prompted an examination of the country's relationship with North America, a relationship which is being playfully explored within the context of pop culture. Artists and designers hailing from China and beyond are incorporating a Chinese aesthetic into traditionally American products, illustrating the tradition of borrowing and re-interpreting cultural elements, as well as recognizing China's influence in a more authentic way.
