Using waste clothing as the main material, I create stuffed animals, dolls, sculptures, and other creations that cross the concept of three-dimensional modeling.
I produce “Mokemokemono”, which are fantasy creatures, and installation works using them, and also provide my works for music videos.
“Mokemokemono” is a fantasy creature created by connecting parts of animals and human bodies made from clothes that are no longer used and connecting them.
They are like our alter ego, who are constantly seeking answers about their uncertain existence.
Their appearance is in the shape of an animal. However, you can also feel humanity in the gestures and appearance, and that is because we can confront our inner self through them.
Clothes that are no longer used as a material had shared everyday life with their owners and accumulated their past events and the experiences.
I think they are also a metaphor for the dead.
The process of those clothes being reborn by “”hand-sewn”” is similar to some kind of ritual or prayer.
The works created in this way are like communicators, those who are experiencing both life and death, and sometimes they are free to come and go, telling us what they are like.
Since ancient times, it has been said that the seams have a magical power.
Through the act of “sewing”, I reconsider the uncertain self and the world.
