I create installation spaces that allow each viewer to relate their own personal experiences and memories to the narrative depicted through the evidence of human presence. I am interested in the imprints left by human absence, how the viewer becomes more conscious of his/her own presence within the space.
Living in the United States for four years, I have become more aware of my identity and Japanese culture. Through the valuable experience of moving to another country to live from my own country, I have been able to look at my country and myself from a different perspective. This experience has greatly influenced the way I think of my life and my work.
My current work is a reflection of my emotional interpretations of my experiences through memories.
