Nobuko Okumura

Mineral collection was born as a part of my Vertebrae Collection. My interest in minerals has been extended to explore its own collection. The natural forms of stones are always individual and one off kind.

Preciousness is subjective we know what is precious to us despite what is listed as being geologically rare or important. These minerals are not precious but have the treasure quality that I feel when I own a thing that is rare to me or something that looks like it comes from a far away place. These minerals preserve pleasure in a kind of childish sense and also accept its valuable status.
