Connected – Isolated : Interview with Dan Yokoyama

About This Project

Connected – Isolated is a project based from and inspired by the oral history of Army Veteran Dan Yokoyama: his experiences living in and outside of Hawaii, and how the military was a part of his life throughout. Connected – Isolated is comprised of two “books” and a handcrafted box. Both books focus on his geographical experiences and fold out to feature his stories and maps of the area.

The first book, Connected recalls Captain Yokoyama’s experiences away from Hawaii and how he feels connected to these different locations. The second book Isolated recalls his experiences living in Hawaii and as a local and civilian but being unable to form the same connection to where he calls “home”.
