Taoyuan Jin 金桃源 makes work about home and away, the self and place, & the everyday. 
She is interested in the theorization of travel as a range of interdisciplinary practices, situating oneself in relation to a questionable, stable & constant home. In her research, she investigates the representation of transnational migration, identity politics, and the “open road” in experimental ethnographic films. 

Taoyuan was born and raised in Hangzhou, China. She holds a BA from Emerson College and an MFA from Duke University. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
