Yuen, Nina

Atlantis Na Plato (2016). Raymond (video, 2015). "Yuen asks her father to name all the people he knows who have died. She pairs each with a branch, a seed, a flower, or an organic fragment that has fallen to the street in a rainstorm. The names describe the history of immigration to Hawaii through the sugar cane plantations that brought Yuen's ancestors to the islands. The plants are also migrants: they came to Hawaii in the jet stream, a high elevation wind corridor that carries species over the oceans for thousands of miles."
