 I’m fascinated by creating visual and sound which are reflecting (hidden) emotion, perception, and (unvoiced) statement. It’s a memory which is fragmented consequence of the fact and imagination in reality and mind. When inspiration came to our mind, where are they coming from? Connecting to unknown but divine? When a tear is coming from eyes because to remember we’re as salty as sea which is vast and source of our life?    

 I always wonder what we are, searching for humanity and existing, I found the time is very fascinating subject because It can be changed by our perception. Movement creates space and time, smallest particles of our body is constantly vibrating to sustain our life and energy. Are we a creature of visualized sound? I love Art, Science and Mystery which seems to give me the answers to my endless curiosity. 

     My work is a successive moment of poetic movement using symbols and animation, I invite you to the world of light and darkness at the crossroad of real and surreal dream.





Born in Japan, Multimedia artist Live/Work in Kyoto, Japan. Her love of art and music started in her early age when she started taking lessons of ballet. Her curiosity and searching of her identity as an artist led to move to New York right after 9/11 and  stayed at renowned Chelsea Hotel. She was dancing or taking photography more than talking as tools to express. She has been collaborating with artists, musicians and designers beyond category, Man Parish, Michael A. Levine, Pete Drungle, OVO Ceramics, Theatre Japan Productions and ma non troppo to name a few.

Her study focuses on time-based art as multimedia art.
