Curriculum Vitae

Bron in Ibaraki Japan in 1982. Grown-up in Saitama. Based in Ishinomaki Miyagi since 2011. Traveled United States and South Korea in 2001- 2003.

I focus on “Research and Archive” of the everyday life of the local community in order to find hints of local people and the unique essence of each community or region. Trying to find the source to make artwork through a month to a few months of the research and expresses the results as the photograph, video work, publication, and workshop. 

I mainly focus on memories and experience behind them everyday food.  Running this series as a project base since 2011. Through these projects, I have visited their town or region for few weeks to few months for like “living” to developing it. 10 Shokudo-Projects has been done. I also have researched more than 50 families, more than 80 recipes of home cooking and memories in it. 

Recently, I also have an interest in the technology field, such as electronic devices and programs around our everyday life. I trying to put these essences together to develop it into the artwork. For example, I used high molecule technology for the last work called “The sea placed in the room”. And I also developed a control device for it with my team.
