Japanese-born and New York-based ChiKa sits down and talks to Cools about her new-wave art. Inspired by Japanese art and culture, she creates intricate designs through the median of light. Her work is site-specific, and she is in the process of making her installations immersive. Her childhood in Japan inspires her day-to-day life and has had an enormous influence on her work. She has created pieces for clubs and venues, working with experimental software and pushing herself to create bigger and better projects. Aside from being a sought-after artist and VJ, ChiKa had recently begun teaching workshops in LED mapping. She believes that if you know what you want to do and love doing it, you will always keep working.
