‘“Trans.” has two meanings — Translate & Transport’

Naoko uses paper and objects found during her travels. Postcards, origami, gift wrapping paper, magazines, and other materials rich in color and texture, even supermarket advertisements find their way into her collages. The use of common objects mirrors the shared conflicts of daily living as a Japanese American, in turn grounding her graphic poetry.
