Yoshimi Kihara's work explores the theme of ‘information’ and our relationship to it.
'My pieces build over time and grow in sequence with the days. Newsprint carries on it’s inky surface the imprint of news and trivia that each day throws up. As the structures develop, the sheets of newspaper that I use loose their original function and the objects that emerge begin to transmit new messages of their own. At the same time these ‘time capsules’ age and the fragmented stories within loose their currency. The original colour and paper quality declines leaving a strata of aging that mirrors the history of the objects making.'Visit her website here.
