Misako Inaoka - sculpture


Misako Inaoko: Twig Bird 2006

Heather and Alicia's Noticing Project reminded me of Misaka Inaoka an artist who is all about noticing. In her own words...

"My interests arise from the boundary between what we call natural and artificial. I observe the physical and social environment in detail, to find hidden beauty and peculiarity-- things such as a cell phone antenna in the shape of a pine tree, birds that are not native to the area, or moss growing in a crack of cement sidewalk. I emphasize these subtle details and exaggerate their illogicality to cultivate my own version of invented creatures."

Read the second half of her statement here.

Misako Inaoko: Red Bird 2006

You can't tell by looking but these pieces have motion sensors, they move! And make sounds. See the Red Bird video documentation. Here is one of the pieces from her Evolutionary Tree work, 2007...
