Natsumi Tomita is a Japanese sculptor who utilizes street waste and materials to recreate urban animals.
“Each of these things, which we usually use everyday, once had a story, until they were thrown away. There are bicycles that were once ridden, broken dustpans, signboards from loan sharks, lost umbrellas. Every object had purpose and meaning before they were tossed away. Taking these things that I collect, I connect them and create new life from them.”
