Sumire Sakuma, born in 1985, is a Japanese artist, working mainly with installation, video, photography, and text. 

Over 15 years of her practice with Ikebana, Japanese Art of Flower Arrangement, she has been working on a meditative and contemplative understanding of self, nature, space, and perception, and how they all interrelate. It has evolved through these years into working with any types of objects or living things that we can find around us, not only with flowers, in any spaces - inside/outside - private/public - virtual/physical. 

Her interest is to meet an existence created by interactions between foreign objects as an organism or society, and surroundings including viewers and participants at a space in broader terms as a response resulted from spontaneous behaviors. 

"Just like when water spill on a cloth and the universe is born."

She currently lives and works in Tokyo.

1985年生まれ。華道で培ったフィロソフィーをベースに、現在は空間全体を生けるインスタレーションに表現が派生。

写真、映像、コラージュ、テキスト等表現手法は問わず、あらゆるオブジェクトを用い、その場に宿る宇宙をみている。

有機体としての対象物と観察者が、パブリックもしくはバーチャルスペースで交わることで偶発的に生まれるなんらかの存在ともいえる産物や気配を内包する空間、そのプロセスを大事にしている。
