Tomo Saito and Students from Tohoku, Japan
San Francisco, CA 94102
Tomo Saito worked with 200 students from Japan to create this photo installation, Things in Between. Using Polaroid cameras, Saito taught students to photograph their experience at the Asian Art Museum and use these photographs to re-curate the museum from their view. Inspired by kizuna, he asked students to consider themes of identity and communication as they made a map of connections. From this installation, Saito reflects on the challenges of representing "Asia" from a single perspective.
