Boxing Memories, installation of mixed media objects utilizing photography, found objects, and text

Boxing Memories explores intersections of time, mass culture, and personal history. As an Asian-American woman, Tanaka operates from the margins of America, mapping her family geography of immigration, assimilation, and internment. Artifacts and records of the personal and the popular interact within photo/textual contexts producing a new record of memory caught and boxed, of time passing through the visible.
