Born 1973 Chiba, Japan
Based in Hiroshima, Japan
The theme of my work is "the shareability of memory”. The methodology of the work is to find images that can be shared by layering multiple images and photographs and by setting up a fictional narrative. The work is an attempt to create a new experience and time generated from such a process.
