Yuma Tomiyasu1983 -

Yuma Tomiyasu is interested in those narrow interstices between reality and non-reality occurring in our daily lives. Her work considers these--and attempts to have viewers experience them artificially--by considering the kinds of perceptions and sensibilities deeply layered into human psychology or otherwise invisible, and thus not entirely scientifically explainable. Viewers stepping into Tomiyasu's installations may just happen to encounter certain aspects of their own inner unconscious worlds.
