ARRIVAL


Publication, 2021


Context
ARRIVAL is part one of an anthology published by multilingual bookstore Lost in Books, originally published in 2018. When the first edition went out of print, I was tasked to design the second edition.

Concept 
ARRIVAL was a collection of writing, poetry, art and photography by South Western Sydney locals about their experiences and musing about Australia as migrants and/or children of migrant. The tone was sometimes serious, sometimes sarcastic and most of the time reflective of being "the other".

As a migrant arriving to Australia in 2007, this project struck a chord in me. Coming from a small town with no English, I remember the struggle of navigating through the Sydney airport guided only by the arrow signs. I was overwhelmed with wonder, confusion, and fear. Would they accept me for who I am? Do I have to change to belong?

These questions still stand over a decade later. I hope one day this society will progress to the level in which it aspires to. So that us migrant can be kinder to ourselves and those who come after us.
