Straw wattles - aka straw worms, bio-logs, straw noodles, or straw tubes – are tubes of dried rice straw. Configurations of wattles were laid across Noguchi Plaza, creating a juxtaposition of natural material objects against a canvas of manmade constructs.

Ojama – or a momentary interruption – is an exploration of space, time, and experience of the natural world. In this case a straw wattle is used as a medium to examine how we respond to nature’s interruption of the manufactured environment. The art installation featured in this piece took place at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) plaza in Little Tokyo (Los Angeles) from May to July 2011.
