Tokyo-based artist Rumi Ando studied contemporary art at the Department of Inter-Media Art, Tokyo University of the Arts. She works as a photo retoucher while leveraging those skills to release original photographic works. Tokyo is a city in constant change. The dense structures of this urban place seem cemented into the city's fabric. People's feeling of community, on the other hand, appears to be transferred to locations that aren't visible to the public eye anymore, namely the Internet. Virtual ties have surpassed physical connections with neighbors, causing ancient conceptions of so-called real life to alter. Spinning the thought further, these works deal with Ando's wonder about what this metropolis will look like when we no longer desire material functions. There are no entrances, no exits; a world filled with rectangular structures working their way into the horizon.
Why we believe in this NFT: Tokyo Nude confronts the ever-changing outlines of the metropolis. As we discard the garments of civilization, is this dystopia or utopia?
We warmly welcome Rumi Ando to Jenny DAO
