I’m interested in work that is immersive, interactive and sculptural; work that is visceral to those who create it and those who experience it. Work that leans towards breaking traditional ways of presenting excites me– it allows for this rebirth of naivety and an exploration of the unknown through the ways in which we create. 
My work is motivated by my love of light, and its counterpart, darkness, the expressions of self and form through the process of design and the freedom of play. I wish to continuously create work that surrounds curiosity, bridging the gap between artist and audience by inviting public participation through the work.
Itohan is an interdisciplinary artist and designer whose work is rooted in community and culture. Her work aims to continue storytelling in non-traditional ways, crafting meaningful experiences through the lens of light and immersion. Her work ranges from installations and public works to illuminating lighting designs for experimental theater, dance and events. Recently, she has been investigating creation and craft through jewelry making, leaning towards abstract metal constructions. 
Itohan has co-curated Lincoln Center’s ongoing Social Sculpture Project alongside scenic designer, Mimi Lien and is the lead curator for InLight Collective, an ongoing project surrounding the amplification of BIPOC voices through design, music, and visual arts. Her work as an artist has been presented at JACK Arts, LaMAMA Galleria and Brooklyn Arts Terminal and as curator published by Rosco Spectrum and mentioned in Vogue Philippines. 
Itohan was the recipient of the 2021 Daryl Roth Creative Spirit Award through the Lilly Awards and was the recipient of the 2018 Gilbert V. Hemsley Lighting Internship. 
Itohan is a native New Yorker from Brooklyn and is available and eager for collaboration worldwide.
