Sayaka MIYATA: Majoring Textile Arts at university made me start to produce art with unique techniques of needleworks and machine embroidery. In WARP series, the layer of threads comes out as an intentional glitch with sewing machine. In KNOTS series, I produce embroideries without fabrics as support material. Through these various types of embroidery technique, my works represent a life form, a birth of everything and a state of evolution, which arose my interests in what the error has brought us new values and criteria in this world.
