Next up in the portfolio: a hybrid piece to accompany the art feature—“I Heard My Mother Tongue Today” by Eva Lin Fahey
Eva Lin Fahey (she/her) was born in Jingmen, China, during the One Child Policy. A transracial adoptee, she became a U.S. citizen at age three. A primarily water-based media artist, Fahey creates work that investigates her origins and the circumstances of other girls adopted from China, centering on themes of motherhood, intergenerational ties, and the East Asian diaspora.
