Portland-based multimedia artist Mako Miyamoto reimagines the tale of American imperialism through surreal renderings of humans, creatures and robots all headed toward a joint, undetermined future. Miyamoto uses a variety of authentic and imagined imagery to produce the collection of fanatical works he dubs, Further West. In the outlandish photo series, viewers find themselves face-to-face with a diverse array of pioneers and refugees alike stepping foot onto the vast foreign landscape ahead.
