What does it mean to be an alien? When does it feel like one is not part of something? In what are the ways the feeling of not belonging can affect people’s lives? As we posed these questions to ourselves, the Alien Support Service collective was born.
Coming from Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Brazil, we are four female artists based in New York, who formed a collective to share with other brothers and sisters our struggles, and tools we rely on, to create and survive as Alien artists in the Land of the Free.
Our first publication, the AlieNation Survival Guide, will be launched in the fall of 2018.
