The fusion of science and art opens doors to possibilities beyond our imagination. Experimental performance and talk by Yoko Shimizu, contemporary artist and biochemistry researcher.
The fusion of science and art open doors to possibilities beyond our imaginations.
Yoko spent her childhood growing up in New York. She studied bio-chemistry at university, and the art that she encountered while in New York left a deep and lasting impression on her.
These two elements were the starting point for her activities in science as well as a contemporary artist.She has won many awards both at home and abroad for her artworks created from her own unique perspective, and has held exhibitions in countries around the globe.
While also active as a DJ and simultaneous interpreter, she has created an art that through the use of various forms of media, gives you a sense of familiarity with her pieces.With all the possibilities encompassing the fusion of science and art, who knows what the future might hold
