Chie Fujii: "fragmentary memories"
Chie Fujii was reared in Nagoya and Tokyo, Japan. She holds a masters degree in sculpture from Tokyo University of the Arts. After graduating Chie worked in the product industry in Tokyo for 6 years as a 3D modeling and 3D scanning artist ,which create digital models from scan data to replicate existing real-world objects or from 2D only concepts. This professional experience, creating actual three-dimensional models from 3D software, has influenced her current work where she creates sculpture, not only by hand, but with computer 3D software. Her work explores themes of the mind, reality vs. fantasy and what makes up the human body. In her thought and work, memory forms the boundary between reality and fantasy, also between herself and others.
