WORK > Steveston Nikkei Internment Memorial

Installation sketch
Installation sketch
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.
