A first-generation immigrant is one who moves to a new country and tends to progress without the desire to reflect on what was left behind, or they may be nostalgic for a home they never even experienced. A second-generation immigrant is born in the new country, and tends to desire to reflect on the past of their family in order to assist with understanding their origins. They may be nostalgic for signs of the past and find ways of restoring it. A generation 1.5 is caught in-between. A green card represents the first generation, and a passport as the second; yet the nonfunctional green card is the generation 1.5– expired from its original intent, its conceptual renewal creates an uncanny relationship for the beholder of the document.
