Nao Usami
Master’s degree in Film and New Media from the Tokyo University of the Arts.
She is an artist currently focused on game development using 3DCG technology. In her practice she seeks to break free from all types of social categorization, such as gender, race, and class, and to do so she pursues the creation of a positive parallel world: Usami uses games as a medium to create a world where the player proceeds and makes their own choices among multiple options. By expanding the human body or making it fuse with non-human objects, she explores how we can isolate ourselves from existing values and defy physical limits to choose our own bodies.
