Born 1990 in Tokyo. Upon observing the growth processes of all kinds of things in her direct environment, ranging from certain insects and people to plants and landscapes, she has been exploring ways of expressing such matters without sticking to specific (recording) media. In the resulting works she aims to create the experience as if things appear just like the artist herself perceives them, while at once incorporating elements that make the viewer aware of the impossible. Completed studies in the Department of New Media at the Graduate School of Film and New Media, Tokyo University of the Arts, in 2016. Recent projects and exhibitions include Logbook of a Sea Goddess (Towada Art Center, 2022), New Worlds (NMWA Japan, 2022), TWO PRIVATE ROOMS—A Circle of Reading (online project, 2020 –) and New Ways to Grow: Artists Envision a Post-COVID World (The University Art Museum, Tokyo University of the Arts, 2021), The Yebisu International Festival for Art & Alternative Visions 2018 (Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, 2018).A key member of the practitioner art collective that goes by the name honkbooks.
