Passage: Hatsubon is an
experimental installation inspired by end-of-life conversations artist Tomiko
Jones shared with her father in the months leading up to his death. Together
they discussed how one “travels” to the next destination as a meditation on
loose narratives unfold in sculptural video installations and questionably
fictional photographs. Linked to the identity of place in social, cultural, and
geographical terms, her work explores transitions in the landscape with particular
attention to public lands. Jones received her Master of Fine Arts in
Photography with a Certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Arizona
in Tucson in 2008.
She is the recipient
of several awards, including the 2013 En Foco New Works Fellowship (New York),
the National Society for Photographic Education Freestyle Crystal Apple Award
for Outstanding Achievement, and 4Culture and CityArtists (Seattle). In 2015–16, Tomiko has served as a visiting
artist and curator-in-residence at California Institute of Integral Studies in
San Francisco, California.
A reception will be held on November 3, following an artists’ talk.
