We should have run this over Christmas, on account of its punny name. Hoe Hoe Hoe! was an installation at Container Ground during Tokyo Designers Week in November. Students of Tama Art University in Tokyo filled their shipping container with a papier mache structure lined with shredded newspaper.
"We are planning to improve this artwork to exhibit without container box, and preparing for the next exhibition," says Keisuke Inoue, who worked on the project with Takahiko Azami, Yonemi Tsumiki and Hiroaki Watanabe .
Container Ground (below) is an annual exhibition in which various design studios, brands and schools each convert a shipping container into a temporary exhibition space.
Here's some text about this project from the artists:
Digging through the pile of shredded papers.
Curiously, you can feel comfortable inside and you will forget about the factor of shredded papers.
As you imagine it might be the way of ancient human beings living, you’ll find out “digging” will bring up some kind of primitive memory.
Where does this comfort come from? Is it from memory of the ancients?
Or closely, is it from memory when we were inside your mother’s womb? First of all, why/when we feel such kind of comfort?
We would be proud if each appreciates feel, think, and find out their own answer beyond the act of digging.
