Eriko Unno portrait

Eriko Unno


Most of my works are inspired by the organic forms living organisms have selected to pass their lives down to the next generations. In order to actualize the inspired image, I chose to repeatedly weave, twist and tangle a single line to transform it into the stereoscopic substance. The process of repeating the same action gives me the time to meditate. That is why I like this technique. Eriko Unno
