Her artistic practice encompasses the articulation of communications and connections between being an individual and a world citizen in a multi-layered manner. She explores how to embed such themes by cross-narrating beyond boundaries and the incorporating of intellectual approaches on how we can observe the world.
In 2018 Ota received B.F.A. in Medium- and Material based Art from Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Since April 2021 Ota studies in the Global Art Practice master’s program at Tokyo University of the Arts, where she is searching to complete her philosophy that mixes mediums such as jewellery, video, and essay writing.

I explored the value of ephemeral time and memory in everyday aesthetics and featured this onto the installation. The pieces of necklace are dissolvable and represent the relationship between rationality, sensibility and uncertainty. They convey the idea of reduction and sensuousness. Contrary to expectation, the condition of leaving Norway made an unintended impression of temporality and immateriality.
