Floating Memories, 2022

Floating Memories is a paper weaving that has woven strips of a photo polymer plate relief print and suminagashi (marbled ink) daily calendar pages. The piece captures moments of time and place through warped and distorted images of interned Japanese Canadians and Americans during the Second World War. Sumingashi used on the calendar pages comments on the floating memories that many Japanese Canadian internment camp survivors aimed to forget. Fujimoto is a grandchild of Japanese Canadian incarceration camp survivors and acknowledges the importance of remembering and learning their family history on Turtle Island.
