Unicoco is a contemporary artist,
mainly creating soft sculptures by wool and cloth.
"I was born and raised in the nature-rich Oita prefecture in southern Japan.
I majored in pedagogy in a master's program at Oita University.
After working as a high school teacher and a welfare worker,
I started my art activities in 2008.
I have exhibited a number of three-dimensional works
that can be worn as an extension of the body,
mainly using soft materials such as wool and cloth,
and installations in which visitors participate.
There are many works to appreciate using skin sensation and the whole body.
Instead of just looking at my work from the outside,
visitors pick it up, wear it, and sometimes get inside.
Visitors can experience my work from the inside with their whole bodies."
