Our project focuses on the contrasting serendipities of time and unfortunate hardships that shaped the Japanese immigrant experience, from their entrance into the agricultural sector starting 1884, through Japanese internment during World War 2, to their present-day experience in California. The painted backdrop reflects their emotional circumstances throughout this reverse timeline of Japanese generations. We incorporated mixed media as symbolic imagery of their culture with emphasis on Japanese impacts on the environment.
