At Ma Umi Residencies, Rebecca expanded her fibre experimentation with local plants, including two different types of kuzu, shell ginger, banana leaves, and washed-up coconuts. Her journey commenced with the selection of a large tree at the Pink Turtle beach from where she began collecting drifted artefacts, fauna, and flora. She arrived with the intention to craft atang, or offerings, for the island itself, for peace and our common harmony. 


Drawing inspiration from archival images and the modern practice of object dedications and arrangements, these offerings reflected the artist’s experiments in altar-making. Our garden flowers found a fitting location within a washed-up bottle from China. Fragments of a flag from American Veterans, drifted bamboo, shells and rocks, were rearrange around. Each morning, the area surrounding the tree was taken over by numerous hermit crabs and birds.

During this phase of Rebecca's residency, her installations and performances were kept private. She devoted time to reading poems, singing to the sea, and connecting with other souls affected by the pain, chaos, and destruction of wars. Some of these moment were documented as a photographic series by Alex Wohn, a fellow artist from Hiroshima City University. Together they aimed to craft sculptural pieces using fragments of textiles retrieved from the ocean, while also filming and documenting the ritual water immersion and storytelling process.


The conclusion of the residency received a positive response from the community, particularly those with an interest in plants and herbal medicines. Everyone participated by bringing unique fruits and herbs, and explained the various benefits of each. During this shared experience, a dynamic exchange of knowledge took place, resembling an interactive game where participants, gathered around food and drinks, had an opportunity to learn from one another.
