ABOUT

I have engaged in the media/education industry in Japan and the UK, cooperating with local municipalities to promote regional revitalization. This experience has contributed to my continued interest and passion for people-to-people communication.

 

My primary focus is creating visual art and installations by engaging in memory-evoking dialogues with various peoples. Elicitation of an individual’s memories is often a difficult undertaking, not only because these memories are sacrosanct to the individual but also because they are prone to sudden changes from outside factors such as one’s personal values, surrounding environment, and relationships with others.

 

For me, dialogue has proven to be an effective means for invoking one’s memories. My hope is to grasp the deeper meanings and intrinsic values hidden within these exchanges to express memories in a manner free of any preconceived paradigms.
