This one of two dust paintings on paper as part of my Asian Winds series currently on display at Cafe 104.5, and both use dust from the Ochanomizu area collected by the cafe's curator. I started making Anthropocene art after becoming sensitive to pollution in the air, specifically fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) and the yellow dust that blows in from China. Yes, it is probably not the healthiest form of art that I could make and yes, I do wear a mask at times when preparing the materials I use.
