A video and multichannel sound installation about the forgotten history of Chinese shrimp fishing around San Francisco Bay. A project by Rene Yung in collaboration with Jeremiah Moore (Sound) and Chihiro Wimbush (Video).
Semi-abstract filmed images from the Grace Quan sailings (short video about) to former Chinese shrimping camp sites and fishing grounds are projected on curved fabric scrim material, the shape and scale of which evokes a boat’s sail. Surround 5.1 ambient sound transports the audience, while a tactile transducer in a bench seat renders physical the material processes of shrimping on the San Francisco Bay.
