Between 1908 and 1924, over 20,000 Asian women immigrated to Hawaii to marry Japanese sugar plantation workers. Strong restrictions in immigration laws forced workers to arrange marriages on photographs only. The U.S. Immigration act of 1924 abruptly stopped these arrangements, but by 1930 picture bride unions birthed over 100,000 offspring--a powerful presence in what would become the 50th state of the union.
Hologram Bride looks at what a picture bride arrangement might look like in a dystopian future when only the wealthiest can hope to escape the suffocating reality of a pollution choked earth.
