A Present Absence
Many of us at Studio Wulf are immigrants and in-betweeners. As we move and migrate lands, parts of us are lost or recede into the background and need to be reconnected with so they can reemerge. What we lose isn't entirely lost, but stays as a present kind of absence. Our identities are an exploration, and design is our medium of play and expression in an ongoing process of recovery and reconnection. The apresentabsence Instagram account explores these issues in identity, in an honest and meaningful way. It's a place for the studio to look inwards and express outwards.
“Your posts really move me! I consider myself American, I've lived here for 31 years, but I'm Korean too. But like you said, I'm not defined by this. I'm really glad to have come across your profile. I believe people can really relate.”
