Artist book (Edition of 100), 2019

Documenting the 4 year process of the multi-media project Rock, Paper, Scissors curated by Makiko Hara produced through the residency AIR 475.  A project that considers 'callings' and transpacific movements through time, this book looks at the 'backend' of the processes that consider early Japanese migration to B.C's Gulf Islands from Yonago, Tottori-ken. The voice of K (the narrator of Rock, Paper, Scissors) guides the book through fiction, drawings, ephemera and essay and drawing contributions by Alexander Ginnan, Makiko Hara, Toshiaki Ishikura, Elizabeth MacKenzie, Kirsten Emiko McAllister and Cindy Mochizuki. 

Cindy Mochizuki would like to acknowledge and thank the Canada Council for the Arts, Gina Badger, Alexander Ginnan, Makiko Hara, Toshiaki Ishikura, Elizabeth, Mackenzie, Kirsten Emiko McAllister, Cherry Wen Wen Lu, Vicky Lum, Akio Hayashi, AIR 475 (Naoki Kuruma, Teruko Yoshida, Yoshiko Takamasu, Hiroaki Shiraishi, Shinn Shiroeda), Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, Sherri Kajiwara, Village of Port Alice.
