该项目是由建筑师松本光索和艺术家山极满博共同完成,旨在通过不同作品来重新审视日常生活中不经意的行为,以及身体与物品之间的空间。

This is the collaboration project of architect Kosaku Matsumoto and artist Mitsuhiro Yamagiwa. We attempt to review our casual behaviour in daily life and the surrounding space between our body and objects through the works.

▼项目概览,project overview

在日常生活中,人们的身体动作大都是潜意识的。例如在穿上传统的和服时,走路的动作也会变得和以前有所不同;你会被迫迈出很小的步子,并很快意识到自己应该“以何种方式走路”。在这个例子中,我们重新思考了走路的方式,并且对我们的行动、行为以及周围环境有了更加深刻的认知。

该项目包含了3件作品:鞋架、杯架和餐具架,分别代表了支撑、悬挂和暂时静止三种状态。不锈钢板以结构强度的最小限度进行了弯折,高度抛光的镜面则使其能够根据观察位置而产生微妙的外观变化。

In our everyday lives, most body movements are subconscious. For example, when you wear the traditional Japanese garb, ‘kimono’, ordinary movements like “walking” turns to an extra-ordinary action; you will be forced to walk with short-steps and be suddenly self-aware of “how to walk” due to its form. In this instance, we think about “how to walk” again and become more conscious of our movements, behaviour and surroundings.

We made three works, a shoe rack, a cup hanger and a plate rack, (as a behaviour of propping shoes, a behaviour of hanging and a behaviour of paused moment). Stainless steel sheet was bent with the least bending required for structural strength, and the highly polished mirror finish changes its appearances delicately according to placement.

每个作品都展示了一种“不牢靠”的稳定状态。这种不稳定性会驱使人们在放置物品之前先仔细观察,以保证平衡状态的实现,这与平时我们将东西简单地摆放在架子上的期待完全不同。鞋子的形状、杯柄的尺寸、餐具的材质以及墙壁和地板的不均匀纹理,这些平常被忽视的细节会重新引起我们的注意。

Each work displays a precariously balanced object. The instability forces the user to first carefully observe how balance and equilibrium would manifest before placing an item, quite different from what we would expect from simply placing something on a normal shelf. The shape of shoes, size of cup handles, texture of plates and unevenness of walls and floors… overlooked details and nuances suddenly come to attention.

如果这些作品能够提高我们对于日常生活的感受的解析度,它将会引发一系列连续而自然的行为,从而为当下的生活赋予全新的舒适和平衡感觉。

If these works will function to enlarge resolution of our everyday lives, it might bring us new comfort and new balance of life to our current pragmatical life which consists of a continuous sequence of behaviour.
