Hatsubon: Passage | 2016
Kipp Gallery, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
Installed in a gallery close to my father's birthplace, Hatsubon: Passage is a layered three-channel video installation with three significant sites of water: Monongahela River, Pennsylvania; Pacific Coast, California; Big Island, Hawai'i repeated in memorial reflecting pools, a skeleton boat of ribs made of ash wood, and an oar carved of cherry wood after an end-of-life conversation about passage to the other side. Read the story, Bring me the Oar! View photographic images from Hatsubon.
Inspired by end-of-life conversations with her father in the months leading up to his death, "Hatsubon: Passage" takes shape as a meditation on spiritual transcendence through photographic installation and video projection.
