I was born and raised in Nagano prefecture in Japan. I make sculptures that usually consist of different types of fabricated metals such as aluminum and stainless steel. I also incorporate cast bronze, rubber, and resins that I use for figurative and organic forms. In addition to these materials, I often utilize kinetic techniques that are electrical and mechanical. Inspiration for my work comes from both objects and subjects such as figures, icons, products, customs, social issues, and more. Since I have lived in Japan and the United States and traveled overseas for exhibitions, I have learned various unique cultural aspects and social customs. I also realize the importance of communication and knowledge. Through my work, I intend for the viewers to recognize their unawareness towards other cultures and customs as well as their own.
