Invented at MAS & NOBU.
Classic craft of origami + contemporary lenticular prints create the lenticular effect. Origami humbles the artwork, while it also elevates it into a futuristic, 3-dimensional total effect that often induces head-turning double takes and utterances of, “dope”
Not devoid of its own handmade history, each earring varies slightly in shape, coloration and form. Groove in the imperfections and jump into the audacity of these unexpected and loved pieces
FUTURE STACKED ON TRADITION
As a Japanese-American with a grandmother and mom who were born in the States, it's a different storyline than someone who was has closer ties to Japan. I don't think my great-grandmother would have thought that her future generations wouldn't speak Japanese. This is not a new concept for me, but for others, it's usually surprising and disappointing that I can't speak. Like a good J-A, I do know bakatare :D. That word was once on heavy rotation when speaking about my big bro.
These Lenticular Illusion earrings are a representation of this hyphenated life. They show the beauty and depth in growing up with my Japanese heritage as an All-American Girl (#MargaretCho).
The foundation of the earrings are modeled after the sensu fans my mom used to dance with. The artwork and lenticular effect are inspired by my surroundings and situations I have observed throughout my life.
