BFA Graduate: Tomoko Uehara

Tomoko Uehara
"I am always collecting fun and interesting objects. My tendency to collect attractive objects comes from my own background growing up in Japan. The country is flooded with cute and odd trinkets. They captivate people and it creates a sort of consummerism in Japan. My country is obsessed with cute and fun oddities and this is somewhat a reflection into my own life. I am one of those people. My work is an explaination of this idea of consummerism.
I hope to continue pushing the idea of consumerism in the future. This is because we as a human race are all tied to our things. We are tied to rings, tied to jewelry, or even stuffed animals and other unecessary objects."
