• Taken literally, meshi means 'boiled rice' and yoko means 'horizontal,' so combined you get 'a meal eaten sideways.' This is how the Japanese define the peculiar stress induced by speaking a foreign language.

    Yoko Meshi is a visual response of my trip to Japan as a participant of the 2014 Kakehashi Project: a cultural exhange between Japanese and American students. 

    The book contains recipies, poetry, and photography inspired by my experiences in Japan. It was featured along with 12 handmade travel journals, and a series of photography in a gallery exhibit titled "Tadaima: I'm Home" at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
