urban nature

Naoko Ito's meticulously staged Urban Nature project addresses how the naturally occurring world & industrial worlds we create intersect. Preserved like specimens in glass jars, yet arranged in natural & graceful constructions, the branches feel somehow caught off-guard: wind-swept or striving toward light, suspended as though in a glistening man-made block of ice.

In Ito's words:
I feel like two dimensions is not enough for me to explain about myself or what I’m talking about, what I’m thinking about.
