Mika Tajima

Artadia Awardee

“Mika Tajima translates far-reaching threads of contemporary life into works that highlight our relationships to modernity. Her work reflects and even predicts our collective selves as data producers and consumers, as products of industrial and technological design, affecting and potentially controlling our emotional states.”
– Matthew Lyons and Laura Raicovich
