Pop-up photographs that sway between two dimensional planes and three dimensional objects.
Ikeda Akiko uses snapshots and magazines to create installation work. She cuts out the contours of people and things in the snapshots and magazine pages leaving the points of contact uncut, and pop up in right angle from the surface. She places the pop-up photographs in various places and take pictures of them. She sometimes combines the photographs and scatters them in spaces to create installation works. Photography three dimensional spaces into two dimensional planes. Her manipulation turns the two dimensional pictures into three dimensional objects. She takes pictures of the three dimensional objects to place them into the two dimensional planes. These procedures create a kind of nesting effect of dimensions ,which she calls “Matryoshka doll(Russian nesting doll)effect”. The experience of viewing small people and things in photographs makes the viewer feel like becoming a giant.
