"In Tandem With Time, Rivers Become" is a contemplative installation by multidisciplinary artist Nuttaphol Ma. This space becomes a container for relics and ephemera from Ma's on-going performances titled Stitching Dreams of Leaving, Dreams of Roots. Ma's actions flow as two rivers. One is his public stitchings that alters the US flag from an immigrant perspective. The other is his participatory workshops that invite participants to socially reimagine what a pledge to the flag may be to create a sense of home for all. These undertakings are his direct responses to a tweet where four congresswomen of color were told to "go back" to their country by a former US president. 

Like fragmented memories, "In Tandom With Time, Rivers Become" is comprised of parts. Photo documentations, tests, and video works from Ma's duration performances activate the gallery walls. A site specific participatory object anchors the central space that invites participants to place their reconsidered pledge to the flag back onto the object.
