Born in Aichi, Japan, Lives and works in Tokyo.
My creative inspiration is motived by the concept of ubiety- which is the quality or state of being in a place. Since I obtained B.A and M.A in Product and Craft Design Program at Musashino Art University in Japan, I’ve showed my works at museums and galleries mainly in Japan. I’ve been also involved in community based art projects, site-specific installations and public art projects that emphasize the history and character of a specific area from around 2008. After the massive earthquake and tsunami hit the East Coast Japan in 2011, people lost their geographic location under the devastated area. Since then, I started lat/long project, which was composed of the combination of lat/long numbers and showed the location where I was exactly at on the earth. I received grant from Asian Cultural Council and stayed in New York from August, 2012 to February, 2013. While I was in New York, I also participated in the residency program, Swing Space organized by LMCC. As for the publication, my artwork was featured in the Power of Japanese Art in 2005, Setouchi International Art Festibal catalogue in 2010, Vogue Japan in 2013, and many others such as news papers and magazines.
