"Silent Invader" concept


“It’s been a while since bar code has spread over our life. But “What is bar code? Who is it?” It might be an envoy sent by an alien who wants to dominate over the Earth. Or it could be some code made by some confidential organization (like CIA or something) to brainwash the people. The ‘Bar code’ must be scheming something at this time. All of you, please be careful enough when you use the bar code!”

Bar code part represents something artificial and men themselves, multi colour stripe parts represent the world around us.
If you see the detail of the colour part, mismatched colours like normally people won’t combine together are located next to each other. This world is filled with a wide variety of people and miscellaneous things, at first glance, it looks chaotic but when you see it from far away, you’ll find out unexpected harmonies.
The world surround us also seems to be chaotic, but in fact, there are some kind of balance and harmony. If you see the world from a distance, you can find new beauty and harmony. Like this, I represent the relation of the world surrounding us and ordinally life of people by my artworks.


Material:embroidery thread, acrylic board, double-sided tape,paper
※Coil embroidery threads to thin cutted acrylic boards. Stick them to an acrylic board.

In the process of creating a piece, Simura begins by selecting and preparing a single photograph. While picking up colors from within that photo, embroidery thread is wound onto an acrylic board. Consequently, the combinations of colors in the artwork are random, and she does not consciously decide on their arrangement.
The reason why her works are often described as having a multitude of colors without a sense of oppression lies in the approach of reflecting the colors of the world around us directly into the artwork, minimizing the intervention of the human brain. Additionally, the use of embroidery thread adds a unique warmth to the texture, making the pieces distinctively warmer than those painted with traditional paints.
