Marumi Abe, Ada
Buddha on Trash Can & Buddha on Barrel
Q: What was the concept behind your Momentum artwork?
A: My experience while studying in the United States made me realize the importance of my culture and where I am from. My work represents this using a mixture of Western and Eastern cultures. Found objects, barrels and trash cans, fulfill the idea of industrial waste which represents Western culture. Buddha represents my culture, which is Eastern culture.
Q: Explain the technique and/or process you used to create your Momentum work.
A: I used plasma cutter to make those shapes on my sculptures. Barrel is powder coated.
