What is the effect of memory on architecture? What is the effect of architecture on memory? How do our early memories of home shape who we become? I traveled from Texas to Tokyo in the spring of 2011 to ask these questions in the form of interviews with Japanese creatives, that would be the research for a novel set in Hawaii and Japan. Ten days after I arrived, Japan experienced the strongest earthquake in its history, which triggered a powerful tsunami and set off a nuclear disaster. In this multimedia performance I share my experience of home in Japan, my creative process and invite the audience to participate in shaping my work-in-progress.
