July 24, 2014, Tokyo, Japan - Megumi Igarashi (Rokudenashiko), speaks about her detention for her genital-inspired works at The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan on July 24, 2014. Igarashi also known as Rokudenashiko was arrested last week for distributing data by internet that allowed recipients to make 3D prints of her vagina. Japan still outlaws the depiction of actual genitalia even though it has a large pornography industry. The artist Igarashi had been trying to raise funds online to pay for the construction of a kayak modelled on the shape of her genitals. Before her arrest she had collected 1 million yen (9,831USD) through a crow-funding website and in exchange for donations she had supplied data to supporters that would let them create 3D prints of her genitals.
