Shimoda was the first of my Internet artist friends to come meet me in person when I moved to New Jersey in 2015. She reminded me that I wasn’t completely without community even though I’d moved across the country, and I was grateful for that. You can see Shimoda’s work on her site.

Another Internet artist friend to reach out to me when I arrived in Jersey was the owner of this unusual pet.
