My work is about how people relate to each other and their surroundings, physically and emotionally, it is often about what is not said. I am interested in what people possess within and what they actually project to the outside world, and how they construct their own identity. I am worried about how the power of society, culture and tradition make a strong influence in people behabiour, building limits for the identity development. OVUM I want this work to make people doubt about the limits between a doll and a woman. This project intends to question the development of women`s social role since the birth of gynoid and sex dolls, in a country like Japan, which leads technological developments, and whose society is heading more and more towards individualism. The myth of the“woman doll” presents an idealization of women, that forces them to live up to an unattainable moral and aesthetic unreachable goal. It is a plastic woman who never changes her anatomy, it is an ideal woman who has all the virtues that are required of a female body, like beauty, youth and sensuality, but without any of the undesirable characteristics exhibited by real women.
