Momoko is in her second year as Artist-in-Residence working with hot glass at New Street Glass Studio. She has been focusing on designing interactive domestic objects that provoke conversations.
She uses texture and figures to evoke the audience’s familiarity, and invites the viewer to start developing a personal relationship with these sculptures. The titles prompt fresh ideas, seemingly separate from the neat and elegant forms, but suggest Momoko’s connection with the work.
SEPARATE REALITIES SERIES
Exploring the relationship between dream
and waking life experiences.
This series explores where the boundaries might be between what we call “reality”, or the waking life, and our dreams. Memories become blurred over time, and sometimes memories manifest in our dreams. Simulating our memories in our heads becomes very similar to simulation our dreams. How does one inform the other?
MEMORIES AND PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY SERIES
Recreating relics from the past to confront the future.
Objects hold space and for many of us encapsulates time and the memories of that time. In this series past objects have been re-manifested to reshape those memories and to write a new memory and inform the future.
Exploring windows as portals, reflections, and filters.
These windows are an opening to another space, an altered place, and different frame of mind.
