One day when she was a baby, Rika’s crib fell apart.
As her parents looking for her in panic, they found a big snake surrounding her while Rika was peacefully sleeping. Years after that strange day, her mom swore that it's the curse of the rice-field snake, that made Rika choose the art path. Recently, she moved to Leipzig while finishing her M.F.A. at the Bauhaus-University Weimar.
She hasn't seen any snake for a while ︎.
