I am Unity: SLIPSTREAM / JK Chang

A still from a video by artist JK Chang/SLIPSTREAM. Superimposed on collage of an open journal and fall foliage, JK's face and upper torso are tinted purple, their eyes are closed, and they are stretched into a curlicue to resemble an elongated fish body.

Unity at the Initiative: a multi-site visual exhibition and at-home experience centering art by and for Queer and Trans Artists of Color. I am:_____ is a blog series to get to know our partners.

JK chang is a songwriter who performs and releases music as SLIPSTREAM. Combining ambient, drone and industrial sounds with pop, her songs are sometimes meditations, sometimes spells, and sometimes love letters to her cat Dejavu. JK also makes experimental films, sews stuffed animals, and doodles comics of monster girls in her spare time.

SLIPSTREAM is sapphic drone pop music exploring longing, transformation and memory.
