WORK > Steveston Nikkei Internment Memorial

Installation sketch
Installation sketch
January 2018

In this work, the approach to community engagement is reconceptualized as an artwork.

This installation is inspired by public artwork I assisted Linda Brenner complete for Welcome House, Design Philadelphia, in 2019.

Through reworking the approach to public participation for this community in Steveston, this poetic installation allowed the Japanese-Canadian community to engage with the creative process and develop a personal connection to the memorial.
