Haruka Kojin - Contact Lens, 2011
“Using two types of lenses, one flat and clear and the other with a warped surface to create interconnected circles of varying sizes, the light travels through the acrylic and the images on the other side are flipped and contorted, changing the experience of the space.”
KENGO KUMA Oribe Tea House Pavilion, Japan 2005
A temporary, mobile tea room. Corrugated plastic boards 5mm thick are arrayed at 65mm intervals and fixed together using banding bands. Once the bands are unfastened, the tea room returns to an assembly of cheap elements, making it easy to move. The entire form resembles an irregularly-shaped cocoon, and is an homage to Furuta Oribe’s deformed tea ceremony bowl.
