Cardboad Box House (2002)


The work which looked at and thought of the homeless who spend night on the beach.

He was sleeping like mud, being smeared with sand. As a leg was the skin of an elephant, skin can be burned too much on a day and seemed to be vinyl.

I was not able to think that the lump of the tattered cloth which is not visible to clothes was man once. The Man's body and the surrounding substance are melted mutually,and I shivered with the situation as a human being with the same body.

I installed the house of corrugated paper on the beach, slept in it, and looked at a view and its decaying aspect like him.
