Jason Fujiwara ~It's Not a Myth
I explore notions of hybridization through my own Japanese and Australian cultural heritage. I am part of both cultures, however, at the same time I feel disconnected from both societies. From my personal perspective I am stuck in between two separate worlds – East meets West. I create an alternative/ hybrid universe which operates according to its own logic, an “in between” world or space of my two cultures. The creatures I use are referenced from Japanese folklore, and reinterpreting the monsters and beasts with Western references through the use of collage. The beasts are uncertain which society they belong to; they are a metaphor for my identity, my cultural difference and myself.
