Cindy Mochizuki: Cave to Dream
Jon Sasaki: We first need a boat for the rising tide to lift us

These two exhibitions explore the artists’ connection to Japanese culture. Cindy Mochizuki’s interactive installation examines the passage of time and the power of dreams through four stories drawn from Japanese folklore. Jon Sasaki references the experiences of his Japanese-Canadian grandparents through a performance piece in which he attempts to build a boat while immersed in the waters of Steveston harbor.
