Atsuko Mochida creates revolving floor and walls in abandoned house

This captioned movie shows an installation by Japanese artist Atsuko Mochida, who has cut a volume out of an abandoned house and rebuilt it on top of a revolving platform.

The piece, titled The Revolving House of T, is located in Mito city in Ibaraki Prefecture in central Japan.

To create the installation Mochida cut a circular piece out of the ground floor of the traditional house, which had been abandoned for more than a decade. The five metres in diameter section was reinstalled in the house on wheels, allowing it to be rotated manually by pushing on its walls.

The site-specific work was completed in 2017 and can be visited by arranging an appointment with the artist.
