Flight: memory and transcendence
Flight: memory and transcendence
January 2018

In this work, the approach to community engagement is reconceptualized as an artwork. The installation allowed the community to engage with the process and develop a personal connection to the memorial. By utilizing a series of 6 simple questions about the community's internment experience, memory, and connection to Steveston, the notecards provide an anonymous space for the community to remember, record, and share their personal histories.
