Ryoko Akama

Japanese-Korean living in Great Britain, dealing with installation, performance and composition. In his works, he sculpts everyday tools and waste, using invisible energy such as magnetism and gravity, into kinetic devices to achieve auditory and visual effects, embodying the aesthetics of “almost nothing”, creating ephemeral situations that magnify silence, time and space.

Interested in “non-Western” cultural thinking and perception, her artistic practice explores environment, architecture, cause and effect, structure and sociological pattern.

He is the art director of ame cic, co-runs the independent publishing house mumei publishing and melange edition, and is currently supported by PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music and DyCP Grant.
