Masako Miki in the Art in a Box Headquarters

We are excited to feature Masako Miki in the Art in a Box Headquarters.  Masako writes…

“My work explores the idea of synthesis.  I manipulate contradicting spatial elements such as flatness and illusion to suggest a disoriented context, where the dichotomy becomes an integrated visual reality.  The narrative is based on my own experiences of living in the United States for seventeen years, and concerns dilemmas of my cultural identity.  I wonder how one can truly assimilate into an environment he/she is not from.  I feel mixed emotions of pessimism and optimism.   I am interested in the psychological aspects of how one processes new environments and culture.  In the constant adjustment, I have realized feelings of perplexity, incongruity, and obscurity, are always a part of my psyche.   Ultimately, I want to believe that different cultures can be hybridized and become a unique alternative one.  In this realm, I hope to find a sense of equilibrium.”
