hUb x 403 architecture collaboration project @ yokohama apartment
This project involved collaboration with 403 architecture and a week-long artist in residence with an exhibit held on the final three days of the residency.
As one of our earliest pieces with newspaper people, we experimented with the character of these figures, letting them “grow” over the three-day exhibition period and designing dresses that grew along with their character development.
This was also our first attempt at interacting with the local community. Local residents were sent an invitation and request for newspapers. The newspaper people (fledglings) then went around the neighborhood collecting newspapers from these neighbors’ homes on the date designated in the invitation as part of the performance work.

♡ Project Description ♡
the newly born newspaper people go out into the world for the first time and gather newspaper to make their dresses
the newspaper people make dresses and decorate their homes with the newspaper they collected
they wait for people to come, hoping to serve them tea and cakes
enjoying the company of people and their smiles, the newspaper people fold more and more flowers and try to please them
the newspaper people grow up as they feel the emotions of people
and now, on this last day, from serving tea to folding flowers, everything now feels very different from day.1
