Born in Osaka, 1972. Currently based in Berlin. Shiota’s inspiration often emerges from a personal experience or emotion which she expands into universal human concerns such as life, death and relationships. She has redefined the concept of memory and consciousness by collecting ordinary objects such as shoes, keys, beds, chairs and dresses, and engulfing them in immense thread structures. She explores this sensation of a ‘presence in the absence’ with her installations, but also presents intangible emotions in her sculptures, drawings, performance videos, photographs and canvases.
Zettel'z is one of the most famous creations of lighting designer Ingo Maurer. 80 filigree rods, placed in the cylindrical body, let the paper sheets seemingly float in the air. Part of the design concept is the inclusion of the owner in the design. In the standard version, the user's creativity is required both for the design of the paper sheets and for the arrangement of the rods. Two bulbs provide functionality. Zettel'z has been part of the collection of Ingo Maurer GmbH since 1998.
