tofu
Project info

Life in South Korea as a woman was quite different from what I had in Japan and it was quite hard for me first.
Even South Korea and Japan are both Asian countries, there are big differences in their similarities.
One day, a piece of tofu on a cutting board totally looked like me. It was hanging there so as not to fall down.
Tofu is fragile, white and heavy.
I started this project after that day to share my struggleness as a woman with someone else.
Beginning of tofu series, I focused on my story only, but my interest went to others struggleness while I kept going this project.

In this project, tofu is metaphorically used as someone’s heart answering for the question
“What makes you have hard time?”
