Harima Midori’s process involves making photocopies from print media on archival paper, which she then shapes into three-dimensional sculpture or framed pieces. The muted black and white tones of the photocopies appear as brush strokes; in a sense, she is “painting” with the paper.
Midori draws her inspiration from a longing to connect with nature. “I grew up in the suburbs in Japan. I could only see real nature in pictures. It felt artificial since it was always a visual experience,” Midori explained.
