Moshi is a municipality in northeast Tanzania by Mount Kilimanjaro. Not only is it a tourist center in this region, but it is also the site of one of the three Coca-Cola bottling companies in Tanzania. Moshi Yard is part of an ongoing exploration of how our definition of “translation” may be reconsidered by reflecting on how a universally utilitarian object (like a plastic chair), or a basic human need (like food), are deeply personal and complicated by an understanding of the global labor matrix.
