What Dwelling means to you? A space could be divided into this side and the other side by a piece of wall. What dose this side mean to you? What about the other side?
When I still lived in my parents house that was a newly built large modern house in suburban Tokyo, I did not enjoy being there. It was such a great feeling to live in my own old small studio apartment with sharing vault toilet. You never know what makes someone happy.
ぺらぺらの紙切れで空間を区切ってみる。あっち側とこっち側。 あなたにとってこっち側はどんな意味がある？ あっち側は？ 東京郊外で新築のそこそこ大きな実家に住んでいたけれど、２０歳の頃、汲み取り共同トイレの小さなアパートに引っ越した。親の立場になれば色々思うことはあるけれど、私の立場になって思えるのは私だけなので。引っ越してよかった。その数年後には、日本を出てしまったわけだけれど。

Over 100 of unwanted new/used T-shirts were donated for my upcoming project for Queens Art Intervention 2016. 86 of them were donated in Japan during my visit and I carried all in my suit case and was very heavy. Thank you so much for your donation! 日本で８６枚の不要Tシャツの寄付をいただきました！ ありがとうございました！ 重くてスーツケースで運ぶのが大変でした！不信に見えたのか、空港では家族で私だけが、荷物を細かく調べられました！
No one asked to leave them on the street. Unexpectedly, coincidentally, not willingly stepped on by someone unknown lying with their slimy saliva. You do not want to touch them. The shape and color change with the condition and time, out of control. I am documenting them using cellphone camera. www.niizekihiromi.com
