"To the Gypsy That Remains 1" part of NOMAD series by TCK artist CHRISTINE RASMUSSEN: " I use urban landscapes, and their relationship to nature, to represent both the struggle & the beauty that comes out of a life of transition. Architecture seems more stable than I am." [Pinned by Heidi Tunberg]
"The TCK Song" by CLAIRE GILBERT: "This is the TCK Song | You're welcome to sing along | But if you want to be our chum | Don't ask us where we're from!" A cute & humorous song from TCK vlogger "Loudandclaire" (see my TCKs: Videos..." Pinterest board for more from her) [Pin by Heidi Tunberg]
Art Installation: "Unstable, uneasy, uncomfortable" is how TCK Artist GRACE KIM describes her installation on Third Culture Kid identity. "I wanted the person who experiences the piece to feel...uneasiness like you don't belong there or feel a bit uncomfortable." Kim, who was born in South Korea, has lived in Pakistan, China, Kenya & the US, & Canada. Pin links to a Denizen article about her art [Pinned by Heidi Tunberg]
"Homeland" (Aramco Brats Bonus Version) by JEFF HUTCHINS; This song about a childhood home in Saudi Arabia's desert will stir nostalgia in ARAMCO brats but also in many TCKs who can imagine their own beloved places. (The album also has a version with fewer place names mentioned by I found the ARAMCO version more touching) [Pinned by Heidi Tunberg]
Inspired by artist/photojournalist Dan Eldon, students at Academia Cotopaxi Int'l School in Quito, Ecuador transformed their personal experiences into visual autobiographies. JULIANA PASSOS (grade 10) presented her story as a package from her "future self" to her "child self." These are a few of her pages. Others can be viewed on this website [Pinned by Heidi Tunberg]
Art Installation: Artist GRACE KIM considers herself a citizen of the world, having lived in 6 countries by the time she was 18. Influenced by this, she tries to incorporate multicultural elements into her art. This piece from her senior show in 2007 "represents the journey of...Third Culture Kids around the world, who all experience an identity crisis quite different from non-TCKs." [Pin by Heidi Tunberg]
"Two Places At One Time": Watercolor by BETH EISINGER (Archival print available on Etsy). "I grew up in Germany, Turkey and the United States and put down roots in all these places. I now feel like a single plant trying to maintain all these roots systems, stretched awkwardly between different countries. It is as if I have to be in Two (or more) Places At One Time."
