About Kokyou (Hometown)

 

This piece is Hiromi's tribute to her birthplace, Kawasaki City, Japan. "Kokyou (Hometown)" is an assemblage of hundreds of snippets from a local Yokohama periodical interlaced with a few red accent pieces of Japanese origami paper. A largely brown and gray composition of origami petals radiate around the central red petal, creating a striking effect of controlled movement.
