Works in residency
I made “Walking map” after the observation of the window grills along the walking. Various and beautiful patterns of the window grills were found in this area, which is an important visual characteristic to me. Windows and Window grills are an essential part of the appearance of the house. It seems that people has been taking care of the exterior parts.
Having “Walking map”, people can find various window grill patterns along the way. It can help people to travel and take a walk here with different point of view. In addition, I made memorial stamps with the patterns so that people can perceive it as a memorial geographic feature but not just an ordinary context.
