ARTIST STATEMENT: -
Many times have I passed people in the street, or at times observed someone sitting opposite me on the tube and have questioned their identities. We are constantly surrounded by a topology, -of objects, people, places, which in turn weave a web of intrigue within the everyday. Spending most of my life in cities, growing up in Tokyo and then moving to London, I have been interested with such aspects of city life with its encounters, storytelling, chance, and improvised conversations. My work resonates around such themes, which are explored through photography and performance projects in collaboration with actors, artists and members of the public.
