Introduction

The art work that changes its shape with the breath of wind, the visual experience based on sequence and the essence of “before and after” embodied in the chain of repetitive threads: through these features of her works Yorita wants the viewer to revert to his/her own position while facing the always changing image of the work. She creates indefinite, unstable space with no fixed meaning inviting the image of the onlooker as well as his/her point of view into the blank/space of the threads she creates.
