Chino's research

The exploration of memory was the main subject of Chino’s creative research at the British Library. Chino is interested in the interaction between people and places as well as how our personal journey, history and cultural background affect and shape our memories. As Pearson Creative Research Fellow, Chino researched the idea of 'memory mapping' as well as the interplay of 'time' and 'memory'.

Chino explored photographs and photo albums from the Asian and African Collections and Manuscripts; she went in search of sonic memories within the British Library Sound Archive; and illustrated books for studying the relationship between image and text.

Young Researchers Projects

Whilst at the Library, Chino ran two Young Researchers projects. You can read more about (BA)d (ED)ucation and Not Everything is Black and White on our projects page.

My work was inspired by a variety of objects in the British Library collection. This research map illustrates the route I took into examining memory and identity.
