Erika Kusumi

プロフィール/Profile

1982年生まれ。北海道札幌市出身・在住。
フォトグラファー、ウェブデザイナー、美術作家。
自身が体験した“現実”を記録し、時間も空間も異なる写真を幾層にも重ね合わせ、デジタル処理を施した「デジタルコラージュ」作品を制作。写真以外の素材は一切使用せず、全て自身で撮影した写真のみを用いている。誰もが目にすることが可能な現実の風景を再構成することで、非現実な世界でありながらも、現実・日常の延長線上、あるいは平行線上に存在する世界であることを表現する。

Born in 1982, live and work in Sapporo, Hokkaido.
Freelance photographer and web designer, also artist.
My works function as memory of the “reality” experienced.Overlaying pictures with different times and spaces, my works have been processed digitally. The artist qualify my works as digital collages, made out only of the photographs I have taken.
