Saki Satom

Saki Satom's work explores patterns of human behaviour that are particular to large urban centres, often focusing on codes and practices that tend to go largely unnoticed. She creates situations that allow her to interact with the public in ways that unexpectedly expose those patterns and cast them in a fresh light. And her works highlighting minor incidents that turn out, on closer examination, to be suprising, even at times extraordinary. She says of her practice; "I want to view our daily routines from a slightly different angle and by so doing show that they may hold hidden possibilities."
