mistubako now lives in Yokohama and writes poetry. Started fieldwork in Hiroshima as one of the core members of HAIZUKA Earthworks project (1994~). Interested in beekeeping, she often visits a bee farm to learn about bees and beekeeping. Since 2000, she has been creating text and photography works inspired by bees, including performances like reading text and exchanging tales.
In 2006, she founded studio Abejas e Colmenas and has been collaborating with painters and architects. Now she is working on next project and searching for the way to create unrepeatable poetry by mixture of collected pollen, flower petals, seeds and words. Her dream in the future is to become a beekeeping poet.
