BIOGRAPHY

Sachiko Kodama was born in Japan in 1970. 

As a child she spent a lot of time in the southernmost part of Japan. This area is rich in tropical flowers and plants, edged by the sea, and washed with warm rain. Sachiko loved art and literature from an early age, but also had a strong interest in science. 

After Graduating Physics course in the Faculty of Science at Hokkaido University, in 1993, Sachiko matriculated in the Fine
Arts Department at the University of Tsukuba, studying Plastic Art and Mixed Media. Then she completed Master’s and Doctoral Program in Art and Design at the University of Tsukuba and received Ph.D. in Art. 

In 2000, Sachiko began work on a ferrofluid art project that she named “Protrude, Flow”. The dynamic movement of liquids is the theme of this project. 

Her work has been exhibited at Ars Electronica Center/Linz, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Tokyo Metropolitan
Museum of Photography, Wexner Center for the Arts/Columbus, Skirball Cultural Center/Los Angeles, The National Art Center/Tokyo, Reina Sofia National Museum/Madrid, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.
