Angela is interested in exploring human’s complex emotion and relationship, which aim to transforming it into installation piece.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
I’m focus on emotion expressing via various materials, in the Gallery I am showing a simulation piece of spider net and it is able to glowing in dark. This work has a concept between ancient Japanese culture and natural landscape, spider net as an element of ancient history, it could state many stores in a silence. During the residency in Itoshima, I am interested in a structure of spider’s net which always been built around shrine or under the Japanese traditional house. I wanted to do a amplification of this beauty, and transform it into another “playful” form throng interactive installation piece.
