“Latchkey Kid” is a series of seal carvings, animation, and performance that blend storytelling, humor, and reflections on the self. These pieces pull imagery and memories from his childhood, presenting the discomfort of a child struggling to confront changes of the past and the uncertainty of the future.

The seal carvings represent excerpts from his personal life and experiences as the only Asian in a Christian school. To complement these carvings, descriptions and ‘fun facts’ adorn the walls as well- reminiscent of a child’s scribbles. The animation and performance explore the relationship between Alan and his mother- a relationship bound in unconditional love but strained by mistrust, confusion, and conflicting personalities.


Alan Devenport is a multimedia artist who pulls inspiration from childhood memories, experiences as an Asian American, and treatment as an outsider. His works are rooted in a desire to connect with others and create communication beyond words.
