Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
For the last couple years, I have been thinking on the theme of fashion as my roots. Due to the appearance of “fast-fashion” recently, our value for clothing has been changed greatly. I was speechless when I looked upon a pile of discarded clothes and an idea came to me to make them into art pieces for future generations. The new series, “My name”, was produced using this method. The care label reveals the history of cloths owner, a designer or people of the country of production. The serial numbers listed on the care labels are printed on silk-screen and used as their ‘names’, like each of us gets a social security number, we can say that a cloth itself has a life.
