My work draws on 19th century Japanese textiles and portraiture to explore themes such as self, history, culture, and environmental issues. In this work, as a reference to the catastrophic Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown in 2011, the relationship between Japanese society and nuclear power is contemplated. Ningyō means traditional doll in Japanese.
