On the meaning of the artwork that inspired her luminous sculpture: "It’s been years since the [Fukushima] nuclear disaster, and there has not been any official announcement regarding affected children yet. No one knows if those children will wear a similar “Fukushima necklace” in the future. I couldn’t live in Japan without recognizing these concerns. On the other hand, I do hope that is just my personal over-concern. The twinkling scar in this series is a metaphor of my ambivalent feelings. The scar itself is our reality, in which we are still facing problems in Fukushima. The twinkling stars are my wishes.”

"As a two-dimensional artist, whenever I see my paintings can become three-dimensional objects and real existence, I always feel very touched," she adds.
