Hello Jenny and Tony:My name is Christine Cortina. I found your website when I did a search for the Far East Café in google.I am a graduate student at Cal State La working on my MFA thesis in graphic design. I am doing a series of site specific installation proposals on 4 neighborhoods in Los Angels that I frequent. One of the 4 sites is the Far East Café in Little Tokyo. One of my friends who also went there with her family as a child told me the importance of the café to Japanese Americans living in Los Angeles.My thesis is concentrated on memories of the past- stories that I have been collecting from people that have connections to the 4 sites- like the Far East Café. I have read the 2 articles on yoursite, "Valley Girls memories of Far East Café" by Jenny, and"The China Meshi" Manifest by Tony. They are very wonderfulstories/memories of the café. I also love the photo's that Jennyhas included in her article.The project that I am doing for the Far East Café is a videothat could be projected in the square top windows of the café-I attached a photo so you could get a visual image of what Imean. The video incorporates photos',images,and written memoriesof the café- like a visual history of it's fruitful past. At this stageit is only a proposal, I have not contacted Chop Suey. It wouldbe shown in the gallery at Cal State LA when I have my thesisshow (hopefully in the Fall of this year!)I was wondering if the two of you would be willing to allow meto use your memories in my thesis project. It would be great ifIf I could also use some photographs that you have from the café.I have already collected some photos, and memories from a goodfriend.Please let me know what you think. I would so greatly appreciateif I could use your memories. Attached are 2 JPG's of the story boardfor the project.Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.Sincerely,Christine Cortina
