Karucha Shoku

by Tara Douglas

This series is a visual representation of the feeling of culture shock experienced while the artist was living in Japan during November and December of 2011.

Influenced by traditional Japanese masks, the focus is on what it feels like to experience culture shock; to be at once immersed in, and shielding yourself from the foriegn culture.

A combination of printmaking, paper craft, body art and photography go towards the production of these large scale photographs.


Each photographic print is 1m x1m encased in a white box frame.

There is a small print run also available, 30x30cm print only for $90 each.
