Inside

Kaori Takasu

MA work

Inspired by travels through abandoned, post-industrial cities that resemble dystopic scenes, I am fascinated by the relationship between nature and the man-made.


My screenprinted objects explore movement and transience through imagery and colour distortion in 3D forms.


This idea opens up possibilities for playful concepts: colours and patterns that change with the viewers’ physical proximity and influence the way we experience our environments.
