My shadow box shows both chosen and assigned identity for myself. Firstly, the cars in the middle show all the side shows happening around Oakland. I believe that’s a chosen identity because it just happens, we don’t choose to see that happen but the people doing it do choose to do it. That is why I have the streetlights there for because it mostly happens during the night. Also sideshows is entertainment for us to watch and for the people doing it. Therefore, the picture of me represents being light skinned. Also the flags represent my nationalities, although only my mom was born in Mexico and I was born in the USA. Moreover, the pictures on the side represent my chosen identity because the lil pump pictures show my love of music and the other guy shows my love of graffiti.Tags: #@lifelikemario #EthnicStudies #lit instagram LifeAcademy shadow box
