Masako Miyazaki received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her film work has shown nationwide and won numerous awards. Living both in the U.S. and Kyoto, Japan, Miyazaki is similarly influenced by Japanese aesthetics and the Super Bowl culture. Her primary subjects are of open systems such as fire and traffic jams. Much of Miyazaki's recent work examines the language of movement harkening the works of Norman McLaren, Oskar Fischinger, and Man Ray. Miyazaki's public collections include the New York Public Library and the Pacific Film Archive. She lives and works in Oakland, CA.
