On the use of collage in her work, Hikari says: "I began to consider the idea of collage in 2012. After the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, which affected people internationally, I became interested in these connections in the world. I express this through such themes as hope and despair; life and death; light and dark; reality and fantasy. I came up with my collage method to represent this concept more fully."

"People say that when you wish upon a star, you can find hope. It can also mean “eternity”. In that sense, stars and heaven become a positive image of death. On the contrary, when a bad thing happens in this world, there is a belief that it will carry over into the next world. I believe that humans are reborn to repeat their lives over and over, and this becomes a negative image of death. So, there are two sides, and the fact that both exist is a major theme in my work."

"Start from Zero" (2014)
